Romy Kasper

Veteran cyclist Romy Kasper has renewed her commitment to Human Powered Health, signing on to continue her role through 2025. This extension marks a significant milestone in Kasper’s career, anchoring her in the Women’s WorldTour peloton into her seventeenth year of professional cycling.

Kasper, renowned for her experience and leadership, expressed her enthusiasm about the extension. “It feels good to stay for another year, especially as I am still not done with Paris-Roubaix,” she stated. Her aspirations at the storied Paris-Roubaix highlight her unfinished business and drive in the sport.

As a road captain, Kasper’s influence extends beyond just her race performance. She plays a pivotal role in mentoring younger riders, and guiding them through the complexities of professional races. “To share my experience with the younger girls and guide them in the races is important,” she remarked, underscoring her role as a mentor within the team.

Kasper’s contribution to the team is not just strategic but also tactical, particularly evident in her work with Daria Pikulik. She has been instrumental in Pikulik’s recent successes, including podium finishes at the UAE Tour Women and the Classic Brugge-De Panne. “I feel great in this team,” Kasper commented, reflecting on the team dynamics. “We are growing together with a lot of new riders. Step by step we connect and more podiums and victories are coming.”

Her commitment to the team’s ethos and her pivotal role in fostering a collaborative and ambitious environment are clear. Kasper added, “I like that mentality of never stopping working on ourselves and chasing to make us better. This is a big family, all riders and staff members and I like to work in this environment.”

Fans can look forward to seeing more of Kasper’s strategic prowess as she continues her role in upcoming races, including the Vuelta a España Femenina. Her ongoing presence in the peloton is set to inspire and lead Human Powered Health as they strive for more success on the international stage.
