Team Sunweb are delighted to announce the signings of Canadian all-rounder Alison Jackson and the young talent Wilma Olausson, strengthening their Women’s program for next year. Jackson will ride in the team’s colours for 2020 while Olausson will stay with the team until the end of 2021.
Alison Jackson (CAN)
A solid all-round rider, Jackson is capable of surviving a tough day in the saddle before delivering a punchy and strong sprint to the line. This year she’s highlighted those qualities with success at the White Spot Delta Road Race, alongside being crowned the first ever stage winner at the Women’s Tour of Scotland. Furthermore, Jackson has shown ability in the tricky spring classics and will add more depth to the team’s block of classics riders. Jackson will also add her experience of riding both in the European and North American circuit to the team, while also continuing her development as a rider too.
Wilma Olausson (SWE)
A talented youngster, Olausson has had two good seasons riding in the junior ranks, picking up several strong results throughout both years. In 2019 she has taken numerous top tens and podium places, with the highlight of her season being winning both the road race and time trial at the Swedish national championships, alongside the overall title at the Watersley Ladies Challenge. A good all-round rider, Olausson has performed well in time trials but also has shown the ability to pack a good sprint after a tough day of racing. Looking to the future, Olausson hopes to continue her development as a rider with the team, building on her strong years as a junior.
