Cervélo TestTeam completed its 2009 roster by adding 19-year-old Swiss rider Emilie Aubry, the team announced Friday. The Chevenez native is considered one of the biggest talents in Switzerland. She was third in her 2008 national road championships and also third in the overall young riders classification in the Grande Boucle Féminine last June.
"On our team we are always thinking about the future," said Manel Lacambra, the women's team director. "Our goal for the next few years is to build a strong team with experienced and talented riders. We watched Emilie closely last year and decided she has the right stuff for our team; very professional, great potential with the ability to improve in cycling and she is a nice person. She is also a talented climber and is fast. This season Emilie will get a "relaxed" calendar, giving her some time to improve and get more racing experience and most of all, that she enjoys cycling."
Aubrey has signed a one-year contract with the team. Her first race for the team will be the Prix des Vins Henri Valloton Fully on April 5.
