The Lotto Soudal Ladies team have announced the signing of British rider Abby-Mae Parkinson from the Drops team. The 22-year-old will target the one-day Classics with the Belgian team.
Parkinson, a former junior national champion in cyclo-cross, is racing in the Superprestige for the first time in five seasons.
“This winter I’m riding the Superprestige series. Cyclo-cross complements my road training,” Parkinson explained in a press release.
“It gives me the speed that I need. As a junior I did cyclo-cross and became multiple national champion, but I hadn’t done it for the past five years. It was a bit of a shock at first, but now I’m used to it again. At the beginning of next year I’ll plan a training camp in Gran Canaria to further prepare for my first road season with Lotto Soudal.”
Parkinson impressed with a solo attack from the breakaway on stage 1 of the Ovo Energy Women’s Tour this year. The move was ultimately brought back for a sprint finish won by Jolien D’hoore, but Parkinson claimed the combativity prize for the stage.
