As a further testament to his passion for developing young cyclists, Axel is also owner and director of Axeon Cycling Team, a high performance U23 professional cycling team. Through the AMYDF, Axel applies the same principles and support to young, local riders as he does with his Axeon pro cyclists. His resume for developing young talent – 18 of his former development riders are now racing in the Pro Tour ranks – is unparalleled in professional cycling.
