CCC-Liv has announced the signing of Sofia Bertizzolo as the last addition for the roster for the upcoming season.

Almost a month after Movistar made knowns that Bertizzolo was left out of the 2020 formation due to "legal constraints, derived from her contractual relationship with the Polizia di Stato," the Italian rider got a new deal with CCC-Liv for the upcoming season.

"I am extremely happy with this transfer and also grateful to CCC-Liv, as the team has always shown an interest in me," she said. "This team is a good choice for me because I can take the next step in my career with them. The team is very experienced and has built a solid organisation with people who have been involved with the team for a long time, also having generated many champions over the years.

"I am happy to work with top riders like Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio and Marianne Vos and to be able to learn from them. In any case, I hope to have a strong season in the spring and I am convinced that the team can help me to tactically race in a smart manner."

Eric van den Boom, CCC-Liv's general manager and team owner, welcomed the signing. "We have had Sofia on our radar for a long time and are happy that we managed to reach an agreement at the last minute," he commented. "Already in 2018, by winning the youth ranking in the Women's WorldTour, she has shown that she is a rising talent.

"This year she was in the leading group in the Tour of Flanders and she nicely finished fourth. She can perfectly manage climbs and moreover she has a strong sprint in her legs, having proven this in the opening stage of the Emakumeen Bira earlier in the year, among other things. With Sofia, we get a versatile rider and we can be even more dominant in 2020."

The team also confirmed that all riders that were in the team in 2019 will stay for next season and with the addition of Bertizzolo, Aurela Nerlo, Marta Jaskulska and Soraya Paladin it is complete for the upcoming year.
