Veronica Ewers is the first big signing to the new women's team EF Education-Cannondale, set to launch with a Continental licence in 2024. The US-based outfit has since announced four additional riders including Coryn Labecki, Nina Kessler, Noemi Rüegg and Megan Armitage, along with its general manager Esra Tromp.

Ewers was the only rider on the current EF Education-TIBCO-SVB team under contract through 2025, however, that programme's future is at risk since the loss of long-time sponsors TIBCO and Silicon Valley Bank, due to "recent economic challenges and events".
