Andrea Ramirez, the 24-year-old Mexican cyclist, is set to join the American UCI continental women’s team, Roxo Racing, for the 2024 season, signing a one-year contract. This move marks her return to an American-based team after three seasons racing for European teams. Ramirez has had notable success in South and North America in the past, including her victory in the uphill time trial at the Joe Martin Stage Race in 2019.
Recently, Ramirez has demonstrated impressive form, particularly in South America. Her achievements include securing her third Mexican time trial championship title in her relatively short career. She also placed sixth in both the road race and time trial at the Central American and Caribbean Games. Moreover, Ramirez competed in the road race of the Pan American Games, finishing ninth, which mirrored her result from the individual time trial a week earlier.
In 2022, Ramirez was part of the Bizkaia Durango team, a Spanish outfit that will not be registered at the UCI level for 2024. Prior to that, she raced for another Spanish team, Massi Tactic, in 2022 and was with the Italian team AR Monex in 2021. Her return to Roxo Racing is anticipated to enhance her opportunities to participate in more races across South and North America, where she has previously experienced considerable success.
