Swedish Karin Aune has left Menikini-Gysko and signed for Austrian team Uniqa-Graz for the coming season. This will be her third year as a pro, after her debut in Michaela Fanini-Record Rox in 2006 at the age of 31. Before that she studied for a PhD in Forest management directed on viability models for forest cryptogams.
"Uniqa is a smaller team than Menikini, but that was a deliberate choice from my part. I will get a fairly free role and will be able to take my chances, which I think suits me better. This past season has been mostly about helping others. It will be fun and exciting to race with this team next year," said Aune.
The team will have its first training camp in February in southern Spain or Portugal. The team has its headquarters in Graz in Austria.
