Ronny Lauke, the manager of the new of Canyon//SRAM women’s team, believes that the sport has never been stronger and is looking forward to racing at WorldTour level in 2016.

Lauke points to a number of areas where improvements have been made and although there is still huge room for further investment and improvement in cycling as a whole – not just on the women’s side – he acknowledges that the sport’s governing body, the UCI, has played a significant part.

Lauke is well aware of any shortcomings in the team but he is keen to stress that they will focus their abilities.
