Megan Jastrab is well-prepared and ready to trade in her junior gears for a shot at the professional ranks with Sunweb and the Women's WorldTour in 2021. The American signed a two-year contract with the top-tier team and is looking forward to eventually racing in the spring Classics while remaining focused on qualifying for the Madison and Team Pursuit in Tokyo Olympic Games next summer.

"I'm training for the Team Pursuit and Madison, everything is for the track," Jastrab told Cyclingnews. "Sunweb are supportive and have given me a lot of leeway in my goals toward the Olympics. They're supportive in making sure that I have everything I need to make sure I qualify for the Olympics next year."
