Cylance Pro Cycling has added Willeke Knol and Malgorzata Jasinska to the 2017 roster, adding even more depth with the recently announced additions of Dani King and Kirsten Wild.

Jasinska, 32, a Rio Olympian for Poland, has been multi-time National Champion in both the time trial and road race and is a strong stage racer. She began the year with a stage win at the Gran Prix San Luis Femenino in Argentina. She has spent the last three years with the Alé Cipollini team.

“Jasinska is a rider that can win races and this season she had good results at the most important races during the whole year. She is very close to the very top level and we believe next season she will reach it,” said sport director Manel Lacambra.

Knol, 25, is an experienced rider for such a young age and comes from Lotto-Soudal where she rode in support of Wild.

“She is a very good team player and will be a great support for Cylance Pro Cycling. Willeke has a lot of experience supporting Kirsten (Wild) in the sprints and will be important in this role in 2017,”
