Bigla has announced the contract extension of Elise Chabbey and the signing of young talent Niamh Fisher-Black.

Chabbey arrived to the team in 2019 and has shown a big progress this season so far with two podium places in the Swiss national championships -finishing second in the road race and third in the individual time trial, the Queen of the Mountains jersey at La Course and the fifth overall position in the Tour of Scotland.

"I feel that I became stronger with every race," the Swiss rider commented. "I learned a lot from Thomas (Campana, General Manager of the team) as well as my teammates. However, I can still improve a lot, and this team offers the best opportunity for me to progress."

"I’m anticipating a good 2020 season with my teammates, and I'm sure we will continue to produce excellent results. I’m particularly looking forward to the Belgian classics, as I think these races suit me, as well as the Olympic Games, which is also a significant goal of mine."

Fisher-Black is 19 years old and will join Bigla right away -her first race will be the Giro delle Marche (September 19-21). The strengths of the rider lie in hilly terrain and demanding one-day races.

"The team has a very professional set-up and has demonstrated success in the development of young riders," said the New Zealander. "I’m looking forward to being part of such a dynamic team. I think Bigla offers the optimum environment in which I can further develop as a rider, and I feel ready to make this progression. This is a team which continuously strives to support its riders to reach their goals.

"It is also a close-knit team which displays fantastic team spirit and I think this is one of the keys to success. I’m sure I will gain a lot from my teammates and I’m convinced that Bigla is a good fit. I’m looking forward to supporting the team and also gaining new experiences."
