Team Jumbo-Visma Women will usher in the 2024 season with a rejuvenated line-up. Having hand-picked at least three new riders based on experience, talent, and potential, the team anticipates a robust performance in the coming year.
Margaux Vigie, a 28-year-old French cyclist formerly with Lifeplus Wahoo, is one of the notable additions. Vigie’s journey in cycling is unique. She shares, “I started cycling at a relatively late age.” Vigie tried her hand at various sports before finding her true passion in cycling. After a stint in physiotherapy studies in Barcelona and a successful spell in racing, she moved to Italy to focus on road cycling. She notes, “I want to be very strong in the spring races, and my dream is to win one of the cobbled classics. I am convinced I will learn a lot with Team Jumbo-Visma.”
Another promising recruit is the young Mijntje Geurts. Discovering her speed prowess early on in her hometown of Luyksgestel, Geurts quickly made her mark in the cycling community. “When I was 14, I joined a local cycling club,” she recalls. With rapid progression, she was part of Lotto-Soudal in 2022 and Lotto Dstny the following year. Now, she’s poised to grace the WorldTour with Team Jumbo-Visma Women in 2024. On her ambitions, Geurts expresses, “I hope to show myself as a classification rider someday, and I dream of riding a good Strade Bianche.”
Rutger Tijssen, the Technical Director of Team Jumbo-Visma Women, expressed his enthusiasm about the new additions, highlighting that the aim is to nurture and exploit each rider’s unique strengths. He proudly mentions, “The team we started with in 2024 has become stronger across the board.”
The team has also announced the renewal of riders Eva van Agt and Linda Riedmann for the upcoming season.
However, with the new arrivals, there’s also a departure of some familiar faces. Post this season, the team bids farewell to riders including Karlijn Swinkels, Coryn Labecki, Teuntje Beekhuis, Kim Cadzow (new team to be announced) and Noemi Ruëgg.
