Canyon/SRAM has announced the contract extension for Tiffany Cromwell for two year, until the end of 2023.

The Australian rider arrived to the team currently known as Canyon/SRAM in 2014 and with them, she has won one stage of the Giro Rosa and finished in the top 10 of La Course by Le Tour de France in 2016. The rider has returned to form in 2021, which was confirmed by her selection to represent the country at the Tokyo Olympics, and she also added gravel racing to her contract.

"I’ve been working with Ronny (Lauke) and some of the team staff even longer than 2016," said Cromwell. "Obviously, there's something there that is keeping us together. For me, we’re a weird kind of multi-nationality family that has a special bond. It’s a team where I feel comfortable to be myself and a team I’ve grown with as a person.

"Initially I struggled to take on the team captain role, but now I embrace it. I enjoy being able to share my knowledge and experience with the team, especially the younger riders. To guide and help them avoid making some of the same mistakes I did as a younger rider."

For 2022, the Australian will keep the gravel-road combination that was successful for her in 2021. "I still like the idea of having a gravel program combined with my road program," the rider explained. "I have a number of goals on the road and want to be racing the biggest races, but at the same time gravel is a good discipline to help build additional strength for the road. With a world series and world championships for gravel to be introduced, it’s only going to get bigger. After having a taste of gravel this year, I now have a better idea what gravel races will work well with my road schedule.

"My road targets will start with the spring classics. After my first attempt at Paris-Roubaix Femmes, I would like another crack. I may not necessarily have the brut power for it, but I do have the skill set for it. Like everyone, after seeing the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift route announcement, I would love to be racing there with the team. As an Australian, we have the Commonwealth Games next year, but also the road world championships in Australia so that will be an end of season target. Having success with the team during the season will mean those targets fall into place."
