Because the directors of that team were complete morons that made him spend crazy amounts of time lifting weights to be better in mass sprints. They wanted him to be a different type of rider.

It was posted at the time of Cort's transfer that he wanted to further develop as a classics rider - Gaining weight for a classics rider is quite common.

Ultimately, Cort left because he received a better contract from Astana.

In 2021, Bissegger took EF'f first win of the year, and a few days later, Cort took the second one.

There has been a lot of talk about Ganna's insane power this season, but being able to do a perfect leadout from a different continent definitely puts Bissegger ahead in my book.
