A fresh start for Pauline Ferrand-Prevot at Canyon-SRAM

by Jeanine Laudy

With a heart-breaking post, Pauline Ferrand-Prevot ended her season in dramatic fashion, stating she that was unsure when or if she’d return to racing again. Fan rejoiced when she uploaded a picture to her  Instagram account of her training again. But the eagle-eye observers noticed something else:  she was sporting Rapha instead of her Rabo-Liv colours.

Today, Canyon-SRAM confirmed the rumours by officially announcing her transfer to their Rapha-sponsored team.

The former multi-discipline world champion has been part of the Rabo-Liv team since its inception in 2012 but after her many successes, she struggled through a troublesome season this year, which saw her sidelined with injuries, unable to win a single race in any discipline, and walking out of the Olympic mountainbike race and her season pre-maturely.

Seemingly with a newfound pleasure in cycling, Ferrand-Prevot is happy to sign with a new team.

“After five great years spent with the best riders in the world I’m glad to announce I’ll be riding for CANYON//SRAM Racing next year. Thank you to Canyon and the team for giving me the opportunity to join a super talented and strong line-up, and believing in me for the coming years,” revealing on her Facebook that she signed a four-year deal.

    That behind the scenes from cross vegas is great, the unique perpectives give the whole unifiying aspect of sport a great feeling

    The MPCC stance is all well and good, but had Sky been a member, then surely they could have applied for / received / used the TUE a few days earlier, stayed within the MPCC’s 8 day rule, and still have benefitted.

    I feel like the MPCC are just using this as an opportunity for good publicity. I like what they’re trying to do in general, but as far as TUEs go, time to get rid.
