Cervelo Bigla’s Time Trial strength just increased with the latest signing of Ann-Sophie Duyck (Drops Cycling). The Belgian power-house is a four-time national champion in the race against the clock, and had impressive season this year with four wins to her name plus a silver medal in the European championships.

“Cervélo Bigla is a world-class team with a huge respect for time trailing,” the 30-year-old said. “I believe the team makes it possible for a cyclist to reach their highest level. It’s a very balanced and well-structured team with a highly professional atmosphere. Another big role in my decision to join is that I will be teammates with Ashleigh [Moolman-Pasio] again and I will be back on a Cervélo.”

“The team has very high-quality partners which are very important for time trailing. Team manager, Thomas Campana is an expert in both road racing and time trailing, I truly believe this is the next big step in my cycling career. I’m looking forward to meeting the whole team. I want to help the team win races. I want to help in the sprint lead-out, being in a breakaway, help to protect the leader’s jersey, be part of the TTT squad…The main key is that we win as a team.”

“We’ve been talking to Ann-Sophie for a while as she is another part of the equation,” said Campana. “She will be playing a key role by adding value to our ambitious group while we support her to reach her potential. The time trial is a passion of ours and our partners. Ann-Sophie is a great rider in this discipline but she is not to be underestimated in road races. We believe she has a lot of to offer and we can’t wait to get the work underway.”
