Jolanda Neff is a multi-discipline professional cyclist who specialises in mountain biking but also competes at the world-class level in road racing and cyclo-cross for Trek Factory Racing’s off-road teams and Trek-Segafredo’s newly launched UCI Women’s Team.

Neff won the elite women's cross country world title in 2017, and the overall World Cup titles in 2014 and 2015, she was also a three-time under-23 world champion. She announced signing to race with Trek Factory Racing, alongside off-road teammates Emily Batty, Ellen Noble and Evie Richards for the 2019 season.

Neff has proven successful on the road by winning the Swiss National Championships title in the road race twice, along with the overall victory at Tour of Poland and third at Trofeo Alfredo Binda-Comune di Cittiglio that is part of the Women’s WorldTour. She was also eighth in the road race at the Olympic Games in 2016 and has placed inside the top 10 in the road race at the World Championships.

Since kicking off her cyclo-cross campaign this season, she has already won DVV verzekeringen trofee - GP Sven, and EKZ CrossTour, and she was fifth at the World Cup in Namur after starting in the fifth row. Look for her as a serious contender for the title at the UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships in Denmark.
