Back in 2012 Skylar Schneider won US junior national titles in the road race and criterium as a 13-year-old teenager. The next year, she was winning criteriums at the highest level and was fourth in the USA CRITS final for Pro Women.

So it was no surprise when after amassing a huge collection of race wins and podiums in the US, and a silver medal in the junior women’s road race at the 2016 World Championships in Doha, Schneider signed with one of the top women’s pro teams in the world, Boels Dolmans in 2018.
