Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling is delighted to announce that Rebecca Wiasak has signed with the black and orange squad for the remainder of 2014. The 30-year-old from the Australian cycling hotbed of Geelong, Victoria, will lend her considerable strength to the team in the Stan Siejka Launceston Cycling Classic, in Launceston, Tasmania, in early December. ?I’m extremely excited about watching Rebecca race with Wiggle Honda,? said Managing Director Rochelle GILMORE. ?I’ve stood and watched Bec from a distance, analysing her persona and professionalism, and after last summer in Australia I decided that I’d love her to represent our team and partners. ?Gary Sutton looks after Bec on the track and highly recommends her as a huge asset to any team environment, and potentially a world class time trial/GC athlete,??Gilmore added. With much of her career focus on the track, Wiasak?s latest success saw her win the overall Individual Pursuit competition of the 2013/14 World Cup, having taken second in the first event in Manchester, and winning the second in Aguascalientes, Mexico. She was also a part of the Australian squad that took second in the Team Pursuit World Cup competition. She is currently in Mexico once again, in Guadalajara, preparing for the first event of the 2014/15 Track World Cup, but can?t wait to join her new team on the road. ?I was very honoured and humbled when Rochelle asked me to be part of Wiggle Honda,? said Wiasak. ?It has been a dream to sign a professional contract but I had never pursued that path because of my focus on the track the past two years. ?It’s a fantastic opportunity and I feel privileged to be involved with such a professional and successful team,? she added. ?I admire what Rochelle has achieved with the Wiggle Honda team and secretly dreamt of being in her team since I started cycling, back when it was the Australian-based Honda Dream Team. I can’t wait to wear the black and orange.” Success on the track, and on the road domestically, has seen Wiasak spend much of the last two seasons riding with the Australian national team in Europe. Her pursuiting strength saw Rebecca take victory in the prologue of the Gracia-Orlova stage race in the Czech Republic in May, and she hopes to be able to apply this strength in the colours of Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling. ?I hope to be an asset to an already strong team of experienced and talented riders,? she said.??I’m a fierce competitor and?want nothing more than to see our jersey on the top step.?I know that Wiggle Honda is the perfect environment for me to both learn and develop as a rider. I hope?to complement the strengths of the other riders, to the overall success of our team, and to?take my own opportunities when possible.?In addition, I want?to enjoy the experience and represent the team to the best of my abilities.?
