The Dutch Argos-Shimano women's team has completed its 2014 roster with the addition of German climber Claudia Häusler.
"Of course as a rider you are always watching other teams, and one team I thought could be a good place for me was Team Argos-Shimano," Häusler said in a press release. "I appreciate the team's focus on helping riders develop in the sport. I have had good conversations with the team and I have a really good feeling about it, and that is important to me. I am looking forward to being back in Europe after my adventure in the United States."
Häusler suffered for several years from a 2010 crash which left her with a concussion and difficulty reaching her top level. She found success in 2013, winning the Joe Martin Stage Race and taking second in the Cascade Classic in the USA, and taking a third place in the Giro Donne behind Mara Abbott and Tatiana Guderzo. She hopes to climb up a step or two in the 2014 race.
