Bart Brentjens, Team Manager and winner of the 1996 Olympic mountain bike race, said, " I am excited to have Margot on the Team. Our team’s goal was to have a new strong rider in the under 23 women's category for 2015 and 2016. Margot was on our wish list! Margot is an athletic, strong and elegant rider, has the necessary Olympic focus and 'til now she proved to be a winner! I am looking forward to working with her towards Rio 2016!"
