It is an exciting week for women’s cycling as the official announcement of a 2017 women’s version of the Amstel Gold Classic was made. This will make a full Spring Classic calendar between Tour of Flanders and Fleche Wallone. Cylance Pro Cycling manger, Giana Roberge offered her insight to this monumental moment, “As I stood on the start line at the inaugural women’s World Cup in Sydney Australia I got goose bumps … history was being made. And now, almost two decades have gone by, and women will finally be able to race the complete Ardennes Classics. In my book being able to race the Ardennes classics is truly a bench mark of the evolution of women’s racing. The scope of women’s racing now encompasses almost every race of the men’s schedule, and we at Cylance Pro Cycling are matching the development step by step. It is a long time coming, but it has arrived. We are poised to strike incredulous amazement in the hearts of the spectators of the famous Ardennes classics – women can race as hard, as passionately and as dedication as men. A true showcase of the sport – equal on both side. It feels so good – we have arrived.” Cylance Pro Cycling is looking forward to racing these classics with vigor and focus.
