Marco Haller: The Classics Bodyguard

March 13, 2022

In episode 4 of The Press Room I chat with one of the strongest classics domestiques in the peloton, Marco Haller of Bora-Hansgrohe. Marco and I chat about the demands and specific rider attributes required to be successful in the classics like Roubaix, Flanders etc. Marco also talks us through team training camps, changing teams and even shared some stories from his early days at Katusha where he was drafted into a team of old era superstars like Óscar Freire.
