German rider Charlotte Becker is joining Cervélo TestTeam for the 2010 season.
Becker is experienced on both track and road. The 26-year-old is a former German national time trial champion and European points champion on the track. Last season, she picked up four wins and finished third overall in the Giro della Toscana while riding as a member of the now-defunct Equipe Nürnberger.
“I saw Cervélo TestTeam last year and the team looked very professional. Now I’m proud to be a part of it and I’m looking forward to the upcoming season,” she said. “I think is a really strong team and I want to help as much as I can. If I get the chance, I also want to go for some good results, especially in time trials, so I am really looking forward to using the Cervélo time trial bikes.”
Team director Egon van Kessel, said he was happy to make the late addition to the team.
“While it is a little late for signings, we are now able to offer the best possible program to the riders. For the team to perform at its best, in all our target races, we needed one more rider.”
