Alé BTC Ljubljana will return for their sixth Women’s Tour appearance in October having enjoyed a good start to the 2021 season.

Former road world champion Marta Bastianelli remains one to watch in sprints – she notably won a stage of the new Tour de Suisse race in June and placed in the top six at Gent-Wevelgem and Omloop Het Nieuwsblad.

The team’s roster also features British rider Sophie Wright, a former European junior mountain bike champion, who is impressing as she makes the transition to international road racing.
