Marta Cavalli will continue to ride for the FDJ-SUEZ-Futuroscope in the coming years. The Italian rider has decided to extend her stay with the team for two more years.
Cavalli is delighted with the contract extension, “I am very happy to have reached an agreement with the team for the next two years. We worked together to achieve our goals, and we have the same desire to continue to move forward hand in hand. I am really ambitious, and the team FDJ SUEZ Futuroscope is ready to support me as a runner and a woman,” said Cavalli.

Cavalli won two prestigious climbing classics, the Amstel Gold Race and the Flèche Wallonne. She placed second in the overall classification at the Giro d'Italia Donne with two silvers and one bronze. After crashing in the Tour de France Femmes' second stage, she was sidelined for over a month as a result of major injuries. A few weeks later, she returned to the peloton and finished the season with the Tour de Romandie Femme.
It is Stephen Delcourt's belief that proof is important, and Marta has already provided him with sufficient evidence to support her claim. “Marta gained momentum in her first seasons, this second season was exceptional with her victory in the two monuments of Amstel and La Flèche, her second place in the general classification of the Giro. As we know, Marta has all the keys to becoming the best climber in the world and winning a Grand Tour fairly quickly,” concluded Delcourt.
