CCC women's team, currently known as WaowDeals, has confirmed the signing of Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio. The South African will make the move after four years in Cervelo-Bigla.

The 32-year-old is currently fourth on the World Ranking and has in his palmares victories in races like the Emakumeen XXX. Bira, the Giro della Toscana Int. Femminile – Memorial Michela Fanini and the Boels Rental Hills Classic, as well as five national time trial titles and three national road race titles.

"After four wonderful years with my current team, I now am ready for the next step," Moolman-Pasio commented. "With the transition to CCC, I hope I can improve myself and above all, win more prizes. During this season, I have gathered numeral places of honour, but I also want to be on the highest podium step more often.

"At CCC, I am surrounded in a professional organisation with good cyclists who make it possible to head further to the top of the world. The past has proven that everyone who starts riding in this team, becomes stronger. Dani Rowe for instance, she has her best season ever. A lot of young talents have broken through. In last weeks Lotto Belgium Tour, I have watched the team with a lot of interest and appreciation."

Team manager Eric van den Boom welcomes this news. "We see Ashleigh as an experienced, all-around rider with added value for the team," he affirmed. "She knows what to do on hills and mountains and time trialling is a discipline she masters as well.

"She rides on a high level and has kept that level the whole season. It would be great if she could take that last step to the top and that she can use all her qualities to grow into being the face of the team."

The team has also confirmed the names of the riders that will continue in CCC for the 2019 season: Inge van der Heijden, Jeanne Korevaar, Riejanne Markus, Pauliena Rooijakkers, Dani Rowe, Sabrina Stultiens and Marianne Vos.
