American track and time trial ace Chloe Dygert will pull on the Canyon Sram jersey for the first time in over a year at La Vuelta Feminina next week.

The team announced this morning that the former time trial World Champion will race for the team for the first time since Omloop Het Nieuwsblad in 2022. In fact it’ll be just her third time riding in team colours on the road since she signed a contract to ride for them from the start of 2021.

Having trained as a journalist at Cardiff University I spent eight years working as a business journalist covering everything from social care, to construction to the legal profession and riding my bike at the weekends and evenings. When a friend told me Cycling Weekly was looking for a news editor, I didn't give myself much chance of landing the role, but I did and joined the publication in 2016. Since then I've covered Tours de France, World Championships, hour records, spring classics and races in the Middle East. On top of that, since becoming features editor in 2017 I've also been lucky enough to get myself sent to ride my bike for magazine pieces in Portugal and across the UK. They've all been fun but I have an enduring passion for covering the national track championships. It might not be the most glamorous but it's got a real community feeling to it.
