Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig showed off her new FDJ Nouvelle-Aquitaine Futuroscope on social media Wednesday. The Danish all-rounder has united with her new team at a training camp in Spain.

The UCI announced six other teams that will form the new top-tier of women's professional cycling next year including Canyon-SRAM, Alé BTC Ljubljana, CCC-Liv, Movistar Team Women, Team Sunweb and Trek-Segafredo.
