Team Sunweb has announced the signings of Canadian Alison Jackson and Swedish young talent Wilma Olausson.

Jackson is 30 years old and makes the move from Tibco-SVB, a team with which she took a victory and finished in the second overall position of the Tour of Scotland and achieved top ten spots in races like the Ladies Tour of Norway, the Winston Salem Cycling Classic and the Santos Women's Tour Down Under.

"I am really excited to be joining Team Sunweb for 2020," said the Canadian. "It is the next step in my career that I needed to bring myself to the next level and keep growing as an athlete. I am looking forward to playing the tactical game with Team Sunweb and to contribute to team wins throughout the year. I race with a lot of heart and I think it will balance well with the resources and expertise available within the team. I think we can accomplish a lot together next year."

Olausson is 18 and has had two good seasons riding in the junior ranks, where she has taken the title at the national championships of Sweden in the time trial and the road race. "I’m really excited to be joining Team Sunweb next year and I can’t wait to make the step up to racing in the pro peloton," explained the Swedish.

"The team has a very good development plan for me and that appealed to me a lot. All of the younger riders that have joined the team get stronger every year and I’m looking forward to learning from both them and the coaches so I can do that too. Coming out of the juniors I still have a lot to improve on and I think this is the right place for me to do that."
