Team Sunweb has announced the signing of the current U23 British road race and time trial champion Anna Henderson.

The 20-year-old will be riding at Sunweb in the 2020 season after spending the last months of 2019 as a stagiaire at Team Tibco-SVB. The rider has had an outstanding season in which she didn't only take the U23 titles but also finished in the second place of the British elite road race and achieved top-three placements in stages of the Tour de Bretagne Feminin and the Tour de Belle Isle en Terre.

"I’m looking forward to joining Team Sunweb next year and taking another step up in my career," explained Henderson. "The team has a very professional environment with various experts and they are known for their good pathway to develop riders. I’m excited to get started in the Women’s WorldTour and learn from the other strong and experienced riders on the team."

Sunweb's coach Hans Timmermans welcomed this news. "Anna is a new kid on the block in women’s cycling after taking up the sport late in 2016, having formerly been a junior slalom champion skier in Great Britain," he said.

"She’s still young and has shown her potential several times at UCI level this season, highlighting herself as a classics style rider with a strong sprint. Anna visited our Keep Challenging Center earlier in the year and she impressed us with her qualities. We’re looking forward to working with her next year and helping her to continue to improve."
