Amalie Dideriksen, Chloe Hosking, and Shirin van Anrooij will join Trek-Segafredo Women's team next season, each signing a two-year contract.

 

The latter has already raced for Trek-Segafredo this summer as a trainee while Dideriksen and Hosking will bolster the current number one ranked UCI women's team in both the classics and sprint races.




Amalie Dideriksen




Former UCI road world champion Amalie Dideriksen comes on board to bring additional strength to the classics group. The 24-year-old Dane has enjoyed great success on the road and track and is looking forward to starting the next chapter of her career with Trek-Segafredo.



In addition to taking the rainbow bands at the 2016 World Championships in Doha, Qatar, Dideriksen won the Ronde Van Drenthe, three stages in the Boels Ladies Tour, and one stage of the OVO Energy Women's Tour.



"I am very proud and happy to be joining Trek-Segafredo for the next two years. I feel excited to take the next step in my career, and I truly feel that Trek-Segafredo is pushing women's cycling in a good direction, and I am keen to be a part of that process," said Dideriksen.



"I've been teammates with a few of the girls before, and the rest I know from the bunch. From my view, the team seems like a great group, both personally and professionally, and I look forward to getting to know everyone even better and become teammates."





According to director Ina-Yoko Teutenberg, Dideriksen's strength in the sprints and ability to win from breakaways is a clear asset for the team:



"Amalie will add strength to our classics group. She's a former World Champion and a good sprinter who has the ability to win out of breakaways, and I think she will be a really good asset for the team and help us be stronger in those specific race scenarios. She's still quite young, and I'm confident she can still improve a great deal year by year. I'm excited to work with her starting next season."



In her first season at Trek-Segafredo, Dideriksen will split her focus between road and track, with the Olympic Games being one of her big goals in 2021.



"I have a big goal next year with the Olympic Games on the track, which I hope to combine with a strong road program. I look forward to helping strengthen the team's lead-outs and being the designated sprinter when the opportunity comes," concluded Dideriksen.





Chloe Hosking


Chloe Hosking is one of the most-successful active sprinters in the peloton. With 36 professional wins to her name, the 30-year-old Australian boasts impressive palmarès with standout results, including four stages in the Women's Tour Down Under and winning La Course in 2016.



Hosking will bring added firepower for the sprints and a wealth of experience after more than a decade racing in the upper echelon of women's professional cycling.



"I'm thrilled to be joining Trek-Segafredo, who burst onto the scene two years ago as a very professional team, setting a high standard in Women's cycling. I've been around the peloton for a long time, and 2021 will be my 12th season as a professional. I'm coming into this team as a sprinter, so obviously my main goal is to win big sprint races. I have won a few races in my career so far, but I would like to win more, particularly some of the spring classics, like Gent-Wevelgem. I would love to etch my name into the winners' list of that race with Trek-Segafredo name across my chest," said Hosking.



"I would love to play a role as a team captain on the road. I've done a lot of the races and have a lot of experience on that front. Often it's an asset for a team leader to not be the protected rider as she can take some of the pressure off the rider who is going for the victory, so I would love to step into that role in some of the races."



In her early years as a professional, Hosking raced alongside Ina Teutenberg as a teammate and will now be taking direction from the Trek-Segafredo director, an opportunity that she is eager to seize.



"One of the huge draw cards for me in making the move to Trek-Segafredo was Ina Teutenberg. I came to the professional peloton when I was 19-year-old under the tutelage of Ina. I rode with her for three years. I learned a lot from her then, but I feel I wasn't good enough at the time to get the most out of the extensive knowledge that she has. So, I'm really looking forward to coming back on-board with Ina and learning from her as she's a great leader with a wealth of information."



"I'll also be reuniting with some of my old teammates. I rode also with Elisa (Longo Borghini) and Audrey (Cordon-Ragot) for four years, and I'm really looking forward to being back with those ladies. I also rode with Ellen van Dijk and Trixi (Worrack), who gave me a phenomenal lead-out to help me win one of my first big races in Europe, Drentse 8, back in 2012," concluded Hosking.





Shirin van Anrooij




After a strong period as a stagiaire this summer, Shirin van Anrooij earned herself a neo-pro contract with Trek-Segafredo. At only 18-years-old the up-and-coming Dutch rider will join the likes of compatriot Ellen van Dijk and Lucinda Brand in the elite ranks as she takes the first steps in her career as a professional cyclist.



"I still can't quite believe it that I'm part of the Trek-Segafredo team from now on. It has always been a dream of mine to become a professional cyclist, but it's so surreal to think that I'm already getting this opportunity at such a young age. I'm so thankful for the trust from everyone from the team. I think the upcoming years will be all about gaining lots of experience and about improving myself as a rider.



 I know that I can learn so much from my new teammates, who have so much experience. The team feels like one big family, and I would love to be able to offer support during the races and do the best I can because I know they'll try and do the same for me as well," said Shirin.



For Teutenberg, van Anrooij is a valuable addition to the team and a blossoming talent with ample room to develop into a great cyclist.



"Shirin comes from the Juniors and is a great talent. We haven't set up any specific goals for her except to develop and learn to be a team worker for the first few years. So, our main focus is for her to embrace the learning process, and for sure, if the opportunity presents itself, try to go for a result in smaller races," said Teutenberg.
