When Canyon-SRAM Racing announced signing Chloé Dygert on a four-year contract that would see their mutual partnership from 2021 through to the end of 2024, it created a stir; after all, it was one of the biggest and most surprising transfers in cycling.

However, the honeymoon period didn't make it into the new year after a horrendous and debilitating crash in the time trial at the 2020 Imola World Championships resulted in an 80 per cent laceration to Dygert's left leg. The injury nearly cost her career and required the entire first year of her new contract for recovery.
