Australian rider Lauretta Hanson heads into her fourth season with Trek-Segafredo continuing to embrace the role of domestique among a team filled with big-hitters, following a year where her contribution to the success of her teammates has been more evident than ever. 

Hanson’s drive to work even harder for her Trek-Segafredo teammates has only been intensified by the faith shown in her with a two-year contract. After ticking off her goal of racing for Australia at last year's World Championships, she also wants to put those valued domestique skills to use for her nation again in 2022.
