Annemiek van Vleuten

Annemiek van Vleuten astounded the cycling world during the 2018 season winning a second consecutive world title in the individual time trial and securing top honours in the overall standings of both the Women’s WorldTour and the UCI World Ranking – making her the number one rider in the world.

Dominant performances won her the overall titles at the Giro Rosa and Boels Ladies Tour, while her winning showdown against new road race world champion Anna van der Breggen (Boels Dolmans) made La Course one of the most exciting races of 2018.

A crash during the road race at the UCI Road World Championships in Innsbruck in September forced Van Vleuten to end her season with a debilitating knee injury. Follow along with her blog as she works her way back into world-class form and races to defend her number one ranking during the 2019 Women’s WorldTour.
