"It hasn't sunk in yet. It all feels pretty crazy," were Teniel Campbell's words just days after the announcement that she had signed her first WorldTour contract with Mitchelton-Scott through 2022. Reaching the upper echelons of professional cycling happened sooner than she thought, and she said it still feels like a dream.

Campbell's under no illusion about how tough racing is on the Women's WorldTour, but she's determined to learn and grow, and she has the support of her nation, Trinidad and Tobago, every step of the way.
