Liane Lippert couldn’t have started this year any better after winning the opening Women’s WorldTour round at the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race and pulling on the prestigious series’ leader’s jersey. In an interview with Cyclingnews following the launch of her newly-named Team DSM, Lippert reminisced on a breakout year and looked ahead to next season where she hopes to bring more of her fighting spirit to the top-tier of women’s racing.

"Australia was really great and totally different because we didn’t start with the coronavirus, yet, at this time and so it was a totally different mind-set than the other races later in the year. We were going fully in for it and it was great to win my first WorldTour race. I didn’t expect that," Lippert said.
