Dutch sprinter Lonneke Uneken says the contingent of young riders at SD Worx are given chances to race for the win themselves as well as ride in support of the team's many successful riders.

Despite being one of the youngest riders in the team at 21, Uneken has recorded three wins for SD Worx this season, taking stages at the Healthy Ageing Tour, the Baloise Ladies Tour, and the Simac Ladies Tour.
