Though this is Bobby Julich’s first year with Holowesko|Citadel as performance director, he has previously held coaching positions for Team Saxo Bank, Team Sky, Team BMC, and Tinkov. Prior to coaching, Julich rode professionally on Team CSC, Telekom, Cofidis, Agricole, Motorola, and Chevolet/L.A. Sheriff (alongside Thomas Craven in the 90s).

Julich is best know for his expertise in the time trial–one that brought him overall wins at Paris-Nice, the Eneco Tour and Criterium International, as well as a silver medal in the 2004 Olympic Games time trial and a third-place finish at the 1998 Tour de france.
