Biography

The German enjoyed a career year in 2017, supporting Chris Froome to victory at both the Tour de France and Vuelta a Espana.

Comfortable setting a tempo and using his considerable frame to keep his team leader out of the wind, Knees is also an incredibly adept climber, and no stranger to setting a pace in the medium mountains.
