Canyon-SRAM's newest signing, Mikayla Harvey, is ready to officially make her mark on the Women's WorldTour in 2021. The New Zealander is one of the fastest rising talents in women's cycling, and after winning the young rider classification at the 2020 Giro Rosa, she has her sights set on becoming a contender for victories in mountainous stage races and tough one-day events.

Harvey, 22, was set to race for another two seasons with Equipe Paule Ka, however, she was left to search for a new team after they suddenly folded due to financial difficulties last October, when Paule Ka failed to make its sponsorship payments.
