The reigning champion of the Giro Rosa and La Course by Tour de France, Annemiek van Vleuten, will return to Western Australia in early November to race in the the 2018 Tour of Margaret River for Team EY. For most of the year Annemiek has been battling fellow countrywoman (and close friend) Marianne Vos to be the UCI Number 1 ranked rider of the World Tour. Her stunning victory at La Course was perhaps the most exciting race we have seen so far this year across both the men’s and women’s pelotons (watch the video if you would like to argue.) One of the finest female cyclists of all time, Annemiek has a happy go lucky and approachable personality that made her one of the most popular pro riders amongst the amateur riders competing in the 2017 TOMR. Stay tuned for a personal message from Annemiek as she looks to help us build the number of female riders participating in the Tour. EY is a major sponsor to the Tour and a company dedicated to providing equal opportunities for women, we think a perfect fit all round.
