Race Preview: Scandinavian program for Cervélo Bigla
The Cervélo Bigla Pro Cycling Team continues its race calendar in the UCI Women’s World Tour in Sweden and Norway from this weekend.
The team first heads to Sweden for the Vårgårda West Sweden team time trial (11 August) and the road race on 13 August.
The team has had incredible success in the events, finishing on the podium in both races the last two years. Last year Lotta Lepistö won the road race while the squad was second in the team time trial.
“We want to help Lotta defend last year’s victory in the road race,” team manager, Thomas Campana said. “We always have good results in the team time trial there. This year is a little different for us because some riders are coming from a rest period after La Course but we have an internal selection process to go to the world championships team time trial. This includes Sweden and Norway so it’s important for us to improve over the two events to meet the internal selection criteria for the world championships.”
New to the calendar this year is a UCI team time trial event in Norway. The 24,3-kilometre race takes place on 16 August from Aremark to Fredriksten Fortress.
