Pauliena Rooijakkers The Netherlands

“I’m very excited to be part of CANYON//SRAM. Since I start pro racing the team, the professionalism of the team behind the riders, always had my interest. I can’t wait to be part of that,” says Pauliena.

Known for her climbing strength, Pauliena targets stepping up to a leader’s role in the hilly stage races.

“I’m a real climber. The nervous races don’t suit me so well. I really like to climb and fight against the mountains and myself. GC riding is something I’m really working on and is the next step in my career. The races in the Basque country suit me, and I’m looking forward to the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift next year.”

Kasia Niewiadoma says, “Pauliena is strong, feisty and wants to win races, and I love to see riders with fire like this joining our team; it’s contagious and affects other riders in a good and motivating way.”

After ten seasons as a pro, Pauliena brings a new level of experience and knowledge to the team.

“The most important thing is to be really part of the team. When we each do our job, we will have multiple options in the finals in order to win. For me to win a world tour race, I know that I need the support of my teammates, and vice versa, for my teammates to win they need a strong team around them in the final,” says Pauliena.

“I enjoy training hard to improve myself every day. Suffering in training and making sacrifices for your career is no problem for me. I enjoy my work and I’m looking forward to the rewards for the hard work.”
