Santesteban commits to two more seasons, feeling at home with Team BikeExchange – Team BikeExchange


Team BikeExchange is pleased to confirm that Ane Santesteban will continue  for two more seasons, feeling at home with the squad, having found her feet within the Australian outfit, performing consistently throughout her debut season.
 
The 30-year-old climber has been a key support rider for Team BikeExchange leader’s, particularly in the hilly, mountainous races but has also stepped up a level herself physically and tactically, with a stand-out performance at the recent Tour Cycliste Feminin de l’Ardeche.
 
With changes to the women’s team roster for the 2022 season, the squad believes that Santesteban will be an important role model, guiding the new additions.
 
Brent Copeland, General Manager on Santesteban:
“We are very pleased to keep working with Ane for the upcoming two seasons. Ane only joined GreenEDGE Cycling last year, but she adjusted to our team spirit straight away. We have really high expectations of her and believe that her experience and characteristics make her one of the riders in the team that can really help us to achieve important results in many races throughout the year.”
 
Ane Santesteban:
“I am really happy to be staying for two more years with the GreenEDGE family. I found a really good group in which everyone can give their best and I feel at home now with the team.

I think my season went well and I improved a lot towards the end of the year, so I am looking forward to continuing to develop with the team and see what we can achieve together and how I can personally develop further.”

The ‘Joker’ Juul-Jensen commits to two more seasons with GreenEDGE Cycling – Team BikeExchange


Super domestique Chris Juul-Jensen will begin his seventh season with GreenEDGE Cycling in 2022, as he signs on for two more years, continuing to be one of the important foundations of the team’s engine room.
 
Since joining the Australian outfit back in 2016, the Danish rider has been a crucial team player, utilising his wide skillset on and off the bike, to help deliver the squad to numerous victories ranging from hilly Grand Tours stages to flat one-day races.
 
The 2018 Tour de Suisse stage winner will be a key member of the squad in 2022 as well as a role model and mentor for the younger up-and-coming riders.
 
Brent Copeland, General Manager on Juul-Jensen:
“We are happy to keep working together with Chris, a very intelligent rider who always helps the team in many different races and situations, not only while racing on his bike, but also supporting the team off the bike and delivering constructive feedback. We count on his full support and commitment to stay with GreenEDGE Cycling, his determination is what we need to continue our journey.”
 
Chris Juul-Jensen:
“It was an obvious choice for me to renew with Team BikeExchange. I have spent six fantastic years with the team surrounded by many incredible colleagues. They are what I enjoy the most on this team and what motivates me every time I pin on a number.
 
We win and lose together; we stick together always. This is what creates the passion and the hunger to go out and race hard. I can’t wait to go out and win races with the team next year.”
