Vos: It'll be hard to replace Niewiadoma, but it's great to see her step up

Marianne Vos says it won't be easy to replace Kasia Niewiadoma at WM3 Pro Cycling next season after the Polish rider signed for Canyon-SRAM at the end of last month. Niewiadoma was one of the only top riders to stay put after Rabobank dropped their sponsorship at the end of last season and has been one of the team's most successful riders in 2017 with a stage win and overall victory at the Women's Tour and podium places at all three of the Ardennes Classics.

Born in Ireland to a cycling family and later moved to the Isle of Man, so there was no surprise when I got into the sport. Studied sports journalism at university before going on to do a Masters in sports broadcast. After university I spent three months interning at Eurosport, where I covered the Tour de France. In 2012 I started at Procycling Magazine, before becoming the deputy editor of Procycling Week. I then joined Cyclingnews, in December 2013.
