Ten new riders have been named to the final 2021 roster for A.R. Monex Women's Pro Cycling Team, a Continental squad which formerly raced as Astana Women's Team, for a “significantly strengthened squad” of 13 riders representing seven countries.

One of the key signings is Eider Merino from the Women’s WorldTour Movistar squad. The 26-year-old Spanish rider is considered to be a pure climber who has twice finished third overall at the Tour de l'Ardèche, including a mountaintop stage win at the French race in 2018. She also had top 10s at the Giro Rosa (2018) and Emakumeen Bira (2019).
