Ane Santesteban boosts firepower at Team BikeExchange



One of the new riders to watch at the reinvented Team BikeExchange is Spaniard Ane Santesteban, who stepped up to the Women’s WorldTeam after delivering results that highlighted her potential to be a powerful ally when the gradient increases. Billed as a climber with resilience and toughness for multi-day racing, the 30-year-old is ready to support team leader Amanda Spratt while also developing more power in the sprints and an improved time trialling technique.

Santesteban started as an under-23 rider on a small Spanish team in 2009 and by 2013 had won the road race national title. In the past three seasons she has finished in the top 10 of the general classification at the Giro Rosa, including a fifth overall in 2019. Last year riding for Ceratizit-WNT Pro Cycling, she won the mountains classification at Setmana Ciclista Valenciana and had four individual stage and one-day race top 10s, including a silver medal at Spanish Road Race Nationals.
