Multiple New Zealand Champion Georgia Williams has signed on for the 2022 season with Team BikeExchange, her sixth year with the Australian outfit.
The versatile rider is a Commonwealth Games Road Race silver medallist and brings an abundance of strength and experience to the squad, an important ingredient for the team during the lengthy WorldTour season.
After set-backs over the past couple of seasons with various injuries and illnesses, Team BikeExchange are confident that Williams can make it back to her best level and enjoy an uninterrupted season.
Brent Copeland, General Manager on Williams:
“Next year will be the sixth season for Georgia, she is one of the veterans of the women’s team now and we really count on her support on and off the bike. With all the changes we are going through next season, with many new riders joining Team BikeExchange, she will play an important role in showing the spirit of the team and way we work. We have confidence that we can truly rely on Georgia in many races throughout the year, it is great she will continue with us for 2022.”
“I’m just as excited for this next season with the team as I was in my first, and I’m motivated to make the next one my best yet. I was happy with the first half of my season this year but then I had some bad luck during the last few months. I am hoping to come back stronger and looking forward to my pre-season build.
It’s exciting to be racing with new riders in 2022 which will mean slightly different race tactics for us and I think they will all be a great addition to the team and will lift us up to another level.”
