Team Sunweb are pleased to announce the contract extensions of Susanne Andersen and Julia Soek with both riders staying with the team until the end of 2021.
Susanne Andersen (NOR)
Since joining Team Sunweb in 2019, Andersen has really settled into the team’s way of working and has steadily developed over the two years. A fast and punchy rider herself, Andersen has taken several top ten finishes when riding for the result, including an impressive fifth place in De Panne and sixth at the European Games in 2019. Finding her feet in the classics and developing into a good road captain, Andersen is also an important lead out rider in the team’s sprint train, where she’s been an integral member of Lorena Wiebes’ two wins in 2020.
Julia Soek (NED)
Soek has been with the team since 2014 and is an integral part of the team’s successes both on and off the bike. A rider who is devoted to working for others, Soek’s experience is invaluable during the hectic moments in a race. As a road captain the other riders on the team trust her decisions, whether that be positioning for a sprint finale or where to ride in crosswinds. Soek relishes her role within the team and looks to continue to utilise her experience in the coming year, developing as a rider and helping the team to achieve good results on the road.
