VIRTU Cycling Women extend contracts with Moberg and Aalerud
Team VIRTU Cycling Women have extended two more contracts with the Norwegian cyclists, 27 year-old, Emilie Moberg and 24 year-old Katrine Aalerud.
VIRTU Cycling Women DS, Carmen Small says about Katrine:
”I have been very happy with Katrine’s growth this year. She suffered a massive injury this spring and with a lot of patience and recovering the correct way Katrine was able to have some very good results at the Giro. Katrine is very self driven and expects the most out of herself, you cannot teach this and she has a very bright future for herself. I’m excited to see what she can do in 2019”!
Katrine Aalerud says:
”I am so excited to be a part of the team for another year. I’m really looking forward to learning a lot more from Carmen and the experienced riders on the team, so I can develop to become stronger and smarter. I see that I have so much more to learn from them. I want to be a good team player helping the team to get victories but I also want to go for the victory myself next year”.
About Emilie Moberg, DS, Small says:
”We are very happy to sign Emilie for another season. The team has been plagued with injuries this season and unfortunately Emilie has been there more than once this year. I’m looking forward to helping Emilie become more of a complete cyclist and help her grow on an already strong foundation. She’s a great asset to the team in many ways”.
27 year-old Emilie Moberg states:
”I am super happy and thankful to extend my contract with Team Virtu Cycling for 2019. From the first moment I met the team, I have had a good feeling and being a part of this team motivates me. It’s a professional environment and I have learned a lot from both the staff and riders this year. I think we have created a good team spirit, which we bring into the races and make good results together. I know I have made steps in the right direction as a rider being surrounded by my teammates and VIRTU staff this season. Personally my goals for the 2018 season did not go as I wanted due to two bad crashes, which took me out of racing for 2-3 months.. During that difficult time, I had the best support and faith from the team, which I am very thankful for and an extended contract for 2019 means a lot to me. Now, I am finally fully recovered and super motivated for 2019 together with old and new team members”.
