Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling is delighted to confirm that Giorgia BRONZINI has renewed her contract, and will continue to ride for the black and orange team in 2015. The 30-year-old Italian former World Champion has been the team?s number one road rider since its inception in 2013, and will continue to be so next year. ?Giorgia BRONZINI, she’s simply amazing, loved by all,? said Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling?s Managing Director Rochelle GILMORE. ?An amazing athlete and an amazing person. Giorgia is a hard, smart worker with a perfect life balance and perspective. Giorgia will achieve more than ever before in 2015, I hear it in her voice, she is as motivated as ever. ?Everyone who works with Giorgia appreciates her personality, she’s always thinking of others and is an absolute dream to work with,? Gilmore added. ?I’m blessed to have the honour to work with Giorgia BRONZINI in the pre-Olympic year. I’m confident that our staff can prepare her well ? to maximise her chances of the ultimate result in Rio, 2016.? As a three time World Champion – having won twice on the road, and once in the Points Race on the track – Bronzini was once again the most successful Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling rider, taking thirteen victories in all, as well as several important podium places. Her 2014 season began with winning three of the four stages and the general classification of the Mitchelton Bay Classic in January, and ended with third place on the hilltop finish of the Giro dell?Emilia in October. Victories in the year included her sixth stage of the Giro d?Italia, the GP Dottignies and the Prudential RideLondon Grand Prix. While a second World Cup victory just eluded the 31-year-old Italian, she took third place in the Tour of Chongming Island, and second in the Sparkassen Giro. Proving that there is far more to her game than simply one of the most devastating finishing sprints in the peloton, many of Bronzini?s biggest results in 2014 came as she outpaced small groups at the end of hilly courses. She also came agonisingly close to a third road rainbow jersey, finishing fourth in the World Championship race in Ponferrada, Spain. Despite being the team?s biggest star on the road, however, Giorgia is more than happy to lend her considerable strength to her teammates where needed. ?I?m really happy and excited to ride another season with Wiggle Honda!? she exclaimed. ?Next year will have a very strong team with some very powerful riders joining, and a lot of strong girls staying from this year. ?I know that my victories come only after hard work from my teammates, and so I would like to give to everyone a chance to win,? she added. ?All for one …one for all!? Giorgia BRONZINI is the fourteenth athlete to be confirmed in the Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling line up for 2015. Also returning from the 2014 squad are Anna SANCHIS, Amy ROBERTS, Dani King, Emilia FAHLIN and Japanese Champion Mayuko HAGIWARA. So far the team has made eight new signings who include two-time Giro d?Italia winner Mara Abbott, Belgian Champion Jolien D?hoore, Great Britain Criterium Champion Eileen Roe, Manx talent Anna Christian, Breton Champion Audrey Cordon-Ragot, Italian Time Trial Champion Elisa LONGO BORGHINI, and Australians Chloe HOSKING and Commonwealth Games Champion Nettie Edmondson.
