Mitchelton-Scott has announced the signing of Belgian rider Sofie De Vuyst to strengthen the roster for the Cobbles and Ardennes Classics.

The Belgian has been part of the professional peloton for more than ten years and will make the move to the Australian team after being in Parkhotel Valkenburg for a year. The palmares of the rider includes a win in the Brabantse Pijl and top-three positions in races like La Classique Morbihan, Le Samyn des Dames, the Erondegemse Pijl, the Tour de Bretagne Feminin and the Flanders Ladies Classic.

"It's very special to join Mitchelton-Scott, it's one of the biggest team's in the women's peloton," De Vuyst commented. "It's quite an honour to ride for this team and it also seems to be a really professional team in every way. I'm looking forward to working with the world's best climber and GC rider, Van Vleuten. I see this really as an honour and I will give my everything to help Annemiek as much as possible.

"I want to be an important supporter for Annemiek and Amanda Spratt in the hilly races and I hope to reach the same level as this year, then I think I can be a strong support in the finals of big races. Of course, winning a UCI race myself would be nice as well. I like hilly and hard courses, after a hilly race, I have a pretty good sprint. My favourite races are Ronde van Vlaanderen & Omloop het Nieuwsblad because they are around on my training roads but I also like races such as Luik-Bastenaken-Luik & Brabantse Pijl because of their hilly profiles."
