Team DSM confirmed its final signing of this off-season by taking on British rider Becky Storrie. Storrie who raced for CAMS-Basso in 2022, had agreed to join the Le Col-Wahoo team for 2023 but because of their sponsorship and budget issues, has been released to find a contract elsewhere. Storrie has had a quick rise through the ranks, only joining CAMS-Basso late in 2021, before finishing 14th in the British national championships that year. Taking on her first international races in 2022, Storrie finished 8th in GC at the Vuelta a Andalucia Ruta del Sol, 15th in GC at the Women’s Tour, 6th in the Commonwealth Games TT and 3rd in GC at the Rás na mBan in Ireland. Domestically she was also strong, winning the Peaks 2 Day race and the Lincoln GP.
Formerly a triathlete, Storrie committed to cycling whilst recovering from chronic fatigue and became notable via Zwift racing during the pandemic and her win at the Scottish Championships road race in 2021.
“I am excited to be stepping up to the WorldTour with Team DSM. They are a team that I have admired since I started cycling and I feel incredibly fortunate to have been offered this opportunity. The team has a real emphasis on development and I am confident that this environment will allow me to maximise my potential as a rider. I am looking forward to working with the team and gaining experience at this level. I believe that together we can achieve great things.”Becky Storrie
“Becky already came onto our scouting team’s radar two years ago and we’ve followed her progress since then. Having made the switch from triathlon to full-time cycling only relatively recently, we think that she still has a big margin to progress and improve. Physically she has some really interesting qualities and is someone with potential as a climber and time trial rider. Of course, there is more to bike racing than the physical aspect, so we will work closely together with Becky to help her step-by-step development and complete her transformation from triathlete to cyclist.”Rudi Kemna, Team DSM head coach
