Canyon-SRAM announced Friday that they have signed Elise Chabbey for the 2021 and 2022 seasons. The Swiss road race champion was part of the now-folded Equipe Paule Ka team but she made headlines this spring for her work in helping an under-staffed Geneva University Hospital on the front lines of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

"Since I started cycling, Canyon-SRAM Racing was one of the teams I always admired. It’s a team that has the same sponsors and a lot of the same staff and riders for a long time. That provides me with confidence about the future of this team," Chabbey said in a team press release.
