After eight illustrious years of memorable achievements at FDJ-Suez, Victorie Guilman has made a pivotal career move. Parting ways with her long-time team, she joins the steadily ascending St Michel – Mavic – Auber93 for the 2024 season.
The significance of this move for St Michel – Mavic – Auber93 can’t be overstated. The team’s DS, Charlotte Bravard, is enthusiastic about Guilman’s arrival. “Victorie has always thrived in the most challenging terrains,” Bravard said. “She will assume the role of leader in climbing stages while also imparting her vast experience to our younger talent. We are assured that she will reach her full potential here.”
Guilman herself is excited about the forthcoming season, citing the team’s strong cohesion and potential for growth as key attractions. “I’m eager to contribute to the team’s success,” she remarked. “In 2024, my focus is on enjoying every race, going with my instincts, and grabbing opportunities. I aim to bring in top-tier results for the team and elevate our collective performance.”
This transition marks a crucial phase in Guilman’s career, just as it serves as a landmark moment for her new team. Her addition brings a desirable blend of seasoned nous and competitive drive to St Michel – Mavic – Auber93, a squad already flush with budding talent. Guilman won the Grand Prix de Chambéry this season, whilst also taking a number of strong results in the Coupe de France races like at La Périgord Ladies.
Stephen Delcourt, General Manager of Guilman’s previous team, lauded her invaluable contribution: “Victorie wore our colours with pride and passion for eight years. As she heads in a new direction, we thank her from the bottom of our hearts for all the memorable moments. Good luck on your new roads!”
