“I’m looking forward to our upcoming participation in the Ladies Tour of Norway. It has always been an exciting race,” team director Rachel Hedderman said. “The addition of a stage that finishes with a long climb to the Norefjell Ski Station adds another dimension. With our team of Kristen Faulkner, Tanja Erath, Nina Kessler, Diana Peñuela, and Eri Yonamine, fresh from a fantastic race at the Tokyo Olympics, we have a great all-around squad and looking forward to some aggressive racing.”

“There is a good mix of racing with some technical stages, some sprint stages, and stage 3, which finishes on a large climb,” Faulkner said. “The variety of terrain presents opportunities for different riders on our team to showcase their talents on different days. I really hope we can come back with at least one stage win from the event.”
