The 2014 road world road race champion has had a difficult season in 2016 and called time on her campaign after the Olympic Games in Rio. She finished 26th in the road race and abandoned the mountain bike event after she was hampered by a tibial plateau stress fracture sustained in the winter.
With a new kit, bike and team, Canyon SRAM team manager, Ronny Lauke, is confident that the 24-year-old can rediscover a winning habit that turned her into one of the most successful riders within the peloton.
“We are happy to welcome such a young but already proven athlete to our modern program. Pauline obviously has a lot of potential, and we believe with our international roster and our approach to the sport, that she can develop further. With her abilities to race in all areas Pauline has created a unique career already and it will bolster our already high quality in the team, especially in the mountains.”
Ferrand-Prevot will link up with Tiffany Cromwell, Lisa Brennauer, Trixi Worrack, and the rest of a strong Canyon SRAM women’s team in 2017.
