Just a year ago Molly Weaver was preparing for her first full Classics season riding with the British-based Matrix Fitness team. On Saturday the 21 year-old rode with one of the World’s top ten ranked teams in her second Women’s WorldTour race, the Ronde van Drenthe.

The last year has been one of success for Weaver, who celebrates her 22nd birthday on Tuesday.
