Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio has extended her contract with the Bigla Pro Cycling Team. The decision comes after a highly successful season for the South African national champion, in a year that she attained six individual victories.
Along with a stage and overall victory in Auensteiner- Radsporttage, other notable results were, second overall in Euskal Emakumeen Bira and fourth places in Flèche Wallonne, Giro Rosa, Strade Bianche and GP de Plouay-Bretagne.
She is also the African Continental road race and time trial champion.
“I’ve felt very comfortable with Bigla Pro Cycling Team in my first year with the team,” Moolman-Pasio said. “I’ve been looking for a stable environment where I can grow and focus on set goals and it’s great to have found it here. With the experience of Thomas Campana, I’ve made strides in my career and have had one of my best years. I’m looking forward to the World Championships in Richmond and the Olympic games in Rio as the next targets in my cycling career. I’d also like to thank all the sponsors for their support. My dream is to see women athletes achieve their potential and they can only do that through the belief from great partners.”
Team Manager, Thomas Campana commented, “Ashleigh has been a great leader on the team. She is an integral part of the foundation of the team and the face of BPCT. We’re working on her continuous development of continuing her path of being one of the best riders in the world. She is such an exciting rider to work with and we believe there is a lot more to come from her.”
Moolman-Pasio last weekend competed in GP de Plouay-Bretagne and is currently preparing to represent South Africa in the UCI World Championships in Richmond.
