GreenEDGE Cycling has finalised its women’s team roster for 2024 and unveiled a new title sponsor, Liv Cycling, rebranding the squad as Liv AlUla Jayco effective from January 1st, 2024. The reshaping of the team heralds the arrival of seven new faces, thus expanding the Australian WorldTeam to a formidable line-up of 16 riders. The technical collaboration with Giant Group, Liv Cycling’s parent company, demonstrates a fortified commitment to the Australian team.

General Manager Brent Copeland expressed his enthusiasm about the added depth that the merger with Liv Racing TeqFind brings to the roster. Among the new additions are five riders from the Dutch outfit, including five-time Spanish champion Mavi Garcia. Known for her climbing prowess and general classification capabilities, Garcia will serve as one of the team leaders. She’s joined by her Liv Racing TeqFind teammates, comprising a Dutch trio of Jeanne Korevaar, Silke Smulders and Quinty Ton, along with Swede Caroline Andersson.

In addition to the veteran campaigners, GreenEDGE Cycling has not lost sight of the future. The team is launching a development squad under the GreenEDGE banner, aiming to nurture young talents and grow the women’s side of the sport. Ella Wyllie, a 21-year-old talent from New Zealand, has been identified as a promising star for the team’s WorldTour peloton in 2024. Wyllie impressed in her European debut in 2023 and is anticipated to reach new heights under GreenEDGE’s guidance.

Copeland spoke to the importance of having a balanced roster to compete across a wide range of races in the ever-evolving women’s cycling calendar. Italian rider Anna Trevisi is also set to join the squad, bringing her experience in spring classics and sprint lead-outs, thereby enhancing the prospects for the team’s sprinter, Letizia Paternoster.

The developmental focus of the team is underscored by the success story of Australian rider Ruby Roseman-Gannon, who joined the team in 2021 with limited overseas racing experience and has since evolved into a consistent high performer in the WorldTour peloton. Copeland stressed the importance of staying at the forefront of the rapidly developing women’s peloton and helping young talents transition to the demands of Women’s WorldTour racing.

Riders not included from the 2023 line-up include: Jess Allen (retired), Faulkner (EF-Cannondale), Kessler (EF-Cannondale), Polites (?), Santesteban (Laboral Kutxa), Tan (?)
