Liv Racing Xstra (UCI Women’s WorldTeam) today announced the addition of Swedish rider Caroline Andersson to its roster. Contracted for two seasons, Andersson will wear the iconic aubergine jersey and begin with Liv Racing Xstra for the 2023 season.
“I chose Liv Racing Xstra because I think it is the best team for my own development. They have experienced staff, good riders and an impressive race programme with some nice big races on the calendar,” said Andersson.
Andersson showed herself this season in, among others, the Grand Prix Féminin de Chambéry (13th) and Tour de Suisse Women (15th in the youth classification). “Those were the most challenging climbing races of my career. It gave me the confidence to push further and see where I can continue to develop and improve for the season ahead.”
“My ambition for the coming year is to develop further as a rider, both physically and tactically, and to contribute to the team. I also hope to be given the opportunity to ride a few races for my own result and to prove my ability there.”
Liv Racing Xstra features for next season 15 riders competing in top-level road races, including the UCI Women’s WorldTour. In addition to Andersson, the team includes Valerie Demey, Marta Jaskulska, Jeanne Korevaar, Sabrina Stultiens, Ayesha McGowan, Mavi García, Thalita de Jong, Tereza Neumanová, Rachele Barbieri, Katia Ragusa, Quinty Ton, Eva Buurman, Silke Smulders and Amber van der Hulst.
