Katusha-Alpecin wasn’t the only team revealing new colours this weekend — Canyon-SRAM, too, revealed a slightly updated kit for 2018.
The team’s biggest signing for 2018, Kasia Niewiadoma, appears to have settled in well at the team training camp.
“I had an amazing week in Germany meeting my new team!,” the Polish rider said via the Canyon-SRAM website. “Immediately I felt that I’m part of the team, a lot of positive energy and good vibes motivate me to work harder for our success that I feel will come in 2018! We created a solid group where everyone knows what they want, is super motivated and inspired! I simply cannot wait for the first race. I am happy that Canyon-SRAM Racing will be my cycling home until 2020.”
The team’s 13-rider squad for 2018 is as follows: Alena Amialiusik (BLR), Alice Barnes (GBR), Hannah Barnes (GBR), Elena Cecchini (ITA), Tiffany Cromwell (AUS), Pauline Ferrand-Prévot (FRA), Lisa Klein (GER), Kasia Niewiadoma (POL), Leah Thorvilson (USA), Christa Riffel (GER), Alexis Ryan (USA), Trixi Worrack (GER) and the winner of the 2017 Canyon-SRAM Racing Zwift Academy (to be announced 13 December 2017).
