“Unfortunately the worldwide situation concerning Covid-19 not only changed the world, but also the complete ‘field of play’ in sports. What not changed are our Team’s ambitions, focus and goals. Our Team’s sportive ambition is still to win a medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games in 2021.
We are very grateful we have our sponsors and suppliers behind our Team’s ambitions and therefor proud and happy to announce Anne Tauber will join our mission the next two years 2021-2022. The Olympic Games 2024 in Paris are still a long way off, but also in both our view and intention to work towards together!
Anne is joining our Team since 2018. As we look back, Anne made and is still making an enormous progression as a professional mountainbiker. With her mentality, she has the capacity to belong to the best mountainbikers of the world. Also in the team Anne is a very positive spirit. Anne knows how to focus and to set goals. She has character and is able to deal with all kind of circumstances. We are happy to follow ‘our’ Olympic road together!”
