The aim of the team is to race at a top level but most importantly have fun and inspire other girls to get on their bikes, helping them discover the joys of riding.”

Some will no doubt query Cannondale’s use of the word “girls” instead of “women”, but this is nothing like the Maxxis Girls debacle. They’re athletes, setting an aspirational example, and we look forward to seeing everything they do.
