FDJ Nouvelle-Aquitaine Futuroscope announced Monday that star rider Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig has signed a two-year extension with the team through 2022. The Danish all-rounder is currently in her first season with the French WorldTour team but hasn’t raced due to COVID-19 coronavirus restrictions and the cancellation of events.

"I am ecstatic to continue for two more years wearing the red, white and blue colours of FDJ Nouvelle-Aquitaine Futuroscope," Uttrup Ludwig said in a team press release. "I cannot wait to put the hammer down in races with my French family. I strongly believe that with continued hard work we will achieve great things together."

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
