Two more years at Wiggle Honda for Spanish Champion Anna Sanchis

Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling is happy to announce that Anna Sanchis will be part of the team for another two years. The Spanish Champion has been with the black and orange squad since 2014 and, despite suffering bad luck with illness and injury, has shown herself to be one of the classiest riders in the women’s peloton.

“I’m very excited to stay on the Wiggle Honda team for the next two years,” Sanchis said. “I feel our team is like a family and for me it’s the best environment to arrive at my goals.

“I especially want to thank our Manager Rochelle Gilmore for trusting in me, despite the fact that I had two very difficult years for injuries and illnesses,” the Spanish Champion added. “I hope to repay that confidence with some great results in races.”

Sanchis joined Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling in January of 2014 amid much expectation, but was unable to perform at anything like her best due to a mononucleosis infection. She returned in 2015, however, in far better health; supporting her teammates in hillier races, and finishing strongly in the Emakumeen Euskal Bira stage race as part of the Spanish National Team.

Dominating the Spanish National Championships – winning her second road race title, and third time trial title – should have been the start of a strong summer for Sanchis, but a badly fractured collarbone, sustained in a crash during the second stage of the Giro d’Italia, saw her sidelined for two months.

Sanchis returned in time to proudly wear her red and yellow Champion’s jersey in the first ever edition of the Madrid Challenge by La Vuelta a España, and represent Spain in the World Championships in Richmond, Virginia.

“Anna Sanchis delighted Wiggle Honda when she won both the Road Race and Time Trial at the Spanish National Championships this year,” said Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling’s Team Owner and Manager Rochelle Gilmore. “It’s such a massive achievement to claim both those titles in the same year which proves the athlete that Anna is at this moment, one of the best! Anna is one of the people’s favourites!

“Anna brings a lot of experience to the team,” Gilmore added. “She takes a leadership role off the bike and has a world of knowledge in the cycling world. We look forward to preparing Anna for the Olympic Games in 2016 where she will represent Spain.”

The re-signing of Anna Sanchis takes the confirmed riders of Wiggle Honda Pro Cycling up to fifteen. The Spanish Champion will be joined by four British riders, in Amy Roberts, Anna Christian and Olympic Champion Dani King of Great Britain and new signing, former two-time Junior World Champion Lucy Garner; three Australians, in double Track World Champion Nettie Edmondson, Australian National Road Champion Peta Mullens and Chloe Hosking.

The team has also confirmed the renewals of Italians Elisa Longo Borghini and Giorgia Bronzini, Japanese Champion Mayuko Hagiwara, Belgian Champion Jolien D’hoore and French time trial Champion Audrey Cordon-Ragot, as well as new signings, Swedish Champion Emma Johansson and Dutch all-rounder Amy Pieters.
