Emma Pooley signs with Lotto-Soudal

by CyclingTips

Emma Pooley announced today that she has signed to race with the Lotto-Soudal team, ahead of the British national championships.

Giro Rosa 2014 stage - 6

“Just in time for tomorrow’s National Time Trial Championships: I’m delighted to announce that I’ve signed with the Lotto-Soudal Ladies’ Team for the second half of the 2016 season!” she wrote on her web site.

“I’m looking forward to being reunited with great teammates from the Lotto team in 2014 and Claudia Lichtenberg from Cervélo Test Team days. And I’m grateful that team directors Dany Schoonbaert and Liesbet de Vocht are giving me this opportunity to race with the team again – they supported and encouraged me so well in 2014.”

Pooley had retired from pro cycling in 2014 to take up duathlon and triathlon, but announced her return to cycling in December in a bid to make the 2016 Rio Olympic team.

“The Giro Rosa will be my main target with the Lotto-Soudal team, riding in support of Claudia in one of the toughest 10 days of racing the women’s Giro has ever seen. It will be hard, and it will be the perfect preparation for the Rio Olympics if I’m selected for Team GB – and if not, it will be great training for the Alpe d’Huez Triathlon!”
