Uttrup Ludwig extends her contract with Cervélo Bigla
The Cervélo Bigla Pro Cycling Team is pleased to announce the contract extension of Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig.
The 22-year-old joined Cervélo Bigla in 2017 and immediately began a breakout season. She won the UCI World Tour youth category and Setmana Ciclista Valenciana.
Uttrup Ludwig has also won the Danish time trial title the past three seasons. Recently she received a significant amount of media attention for animating La Course by Le Tour de France alongside her teammates. She went on to finish fourth in the race.
“It’s a great pleasure to receive her decision and her trust,” team manager, Thomas Campana said. “To choose our project as the one to continue to build her future is really a testament to our structure we’ve built. She’s worked really hard on the team to get to the top of women’s cycling. When it comes to long-term development, we like looking at things in a holistic way. Even at such a young age, Cecilie has been able to understand that and is very impressive in the way she plans her career for the future. We’re looking forward to continuing this momentum the next few years.”
The Danish rider has played a crucial role in the team the past two seasons and has chosen to extend her contract to continue her development.
“I’m extremely excited about the extension,” she said. “I’ve learnt so much the past two years on this team. And now I have a unique possibility to continue my development taking more responsibility. This challenge is exactly what I believe will make me grow even more as a rider and I feel I’m ready for this. I’m so motivated and happy to get this opportunity. This is such a special project driven by passionate and competent people.”
