Kasia Niewiadoma will put away her Canyon-SRAM kit in exchange for the red and white colours of her Polish national team as she heads into her second career participation at the Olympic Games in Tokyo. 

She was just 22 years old when she first competed at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. In an interview with Cyclingnews, Niewiadoma said that a lot has changed in the five intervening years and that maturity, as well as feeling refreshed and motivated, will go a long way as she pursues a medal in the elite women's road race in Tokyo.
