Despite bad luck with injury and illness, the 2022 season has been one of growth Anna Shackley, the 21 year-old netting her best ever results. In her second year with SDWorx, arguably the best team in the women’s peloton, the Scottish rider is maturing into one of the strongest climbers, and her late season results reflect that development.

On Sunday she finished 10th on general classification at the first edition of the Tour de Romandie, her result born of a strong performance on the stage two mountain top finish at the Thyon 2000 ski resort.
