Australian rider Jessica Allen has signed a one-year contract extension with Team BikeExchange which will see her race a seventh season in GreenEDGE Cycling colours.
The 28-year-old originally joined the squad in 2016 and has gone on to become one of the most reliable and selfless teammates in the women’s peloton. Allen has proved to be a valuable domestique across the entire racing calendar from one-day Classics to lengthy and hilly stage races and has been a key part of the team’s successes over the years.
Brent Copeland, General Manager on Allen:
“Jess is part of our GreenEDGE family, and it is a pleasure for us to continue to work together with her. We will have various new riders in our team in 2022, and we are sure she will be a strong asset for them in order to teach them the team’s values. It’s going to be an important year for her as she continues to get stronger and wiser and become tactically more astute.”
“I am really happy to be re-signing with Team BikeExchange and for their continued belief in me as I will begin my seventh season with the team. I’m looking forward to having some new riders on the team with us next year and I hope to be able to use my experience and skills to assist them and their development but while also continuing to grow stronger as a rider myself.
Next year is a really exciting year for the women’s WorldTour peloton with new races added like Le Tour de France Femmes and the biggest race calendar I’ve ever seen during my career.”
