Evita Muzic, a prominent climber in women’s cycling, has extended her contract with FDJ-SUEZ until the end of 2027. The 24-year-old French athlete expressed her delight in the continuity and stability this extension brings, aligning with the team’s vision and growth. “We’ve already achieved great things, but we’re far from finished,” Muzic stated, reflecting her ambition and satisfaction with the team’s journey.
Since her debut with the team in 2018 at just 18 years of age, Muzic has demonstrated her potential, becoming the French national road champion in the U23 category a year later. Her talent in climbing has been consistently evident, with a significant victory in a stage of the Giro d’Italia Donne in 2020, alongside top 10 finishes in the Giro dell’Emilia and the European Championship.
Muzic’s progression continued in 2021, with notable performances including a fifth place in the Clásica San Sebastián, twelfth in the Giro Donne, and winning the French elite road championship. 2022 saw her ascend to the global elite with impressive results: second in the Tour of Burgos, sixth in the Tour of Romandy, and notably eighth in the Tour de France Femmes. Her upward trajectory persisted in 2023 with a fifth-place finish in the Tour de France Femmes, alongside top results in Fleche Wallone, La Vuelta Femenina, and Itzulia Women.
Stephen Delcourt, General Manager of FDJ-SUEZ, praised Muzic’s evolution and her influential presence in the team. He highlighted her significant role in the group’s strength and cohesion, expressing excitement for the journey ahead.
Muzic shared her happiness about the extended partnership, emphasizing the calm and confidence in the team’s long-term project. “We’ve built beautiful things together, but the most beautiful achievements are still ahead,” she remarked, indicating her commitment to reaching higher goals with FDJ-SUEZ.
