"I think it's a good choice and she won't regret it" - Lotte Kopecky excited to race next to Anna van der Breggen next year

Anna van der Breggen will return as a cyclist with Team SD Worx - Protime from 2025. The Olympic and two-time world road champion has signed a contract until the end of 2026 with the cycling team. Since 2022, Van der Breggen worked as a sports director within the Dutch WorldTour team.

World champion Lotte Kopecky is super excited to have an opportunity to race next to Van der Breggen as she missed her chance in 2022: "I am looking forward to racing with Anna in the coming years. I just joined the team when she quit and I actually regretted that at the time. If you see Anna still training with us at training camp, we didn't just ride her off, on the contrary. I think it's a good choice and she won't regret it."

Likewise another star of the Dutch formation Lorena Wiebes looks forward to seeing the 34-year-old back in the bunch: "I like the fact that Anna is coming back. She almost rode us off at times during training too. I think she will bring a lot of good things, in terms of atmosphere and also on a sporting level. I expect her to compete at a high level again soon and hopefully win enough races. I have always been able to work well with Anna as a sport director and I expect the same in the races. I am curious to see what it will be like in the peloton."
