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.

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.
