2020 has been far from expected for everyone in so many ways, a hard year for many no doubt. However, amidst all this I am incredibly fortunate to have been selected to be part of such a strong and supportive team, one that I know will help me continue to follow my path to becoming the rider I one day dream of being. My hard work and dedication alone couldn’t have landed me a spot on the dream team. Thanks to the help of my many coaches, teammates, and family who have guided and pushed me throughout my journey as a cyclist. From the very beginning with the @smbarocks program, through high school racing, @usacycling, and of course the entire @boulderjuniors program. Collectively these experiences and teams have made me who I am today. I owe all my current skills and knowledge to my time as an athlete for my Boulder community. And a special thank you to @petewebbercx, you have been there through it all and there is no way I would be where I am without you! 🙌🏻🤗 📸: @jlwestphoto #trekfactoryracing #keepthepassionalive #cxiscoming #happyracersgofaster

Trek Factory Racing CX suits up
The 2020/2021 team welcomes Maddie Munro to the family
(Waterloo, WI) – Trek Bikes and its Trek Factory Racing CX team is pleased to launch the racing program for the coming season. The team will continue to be the home of tested talent on existing Trek Factory Racing programs such as Jolanda Neff, Evie Richards, and Hattie Harnden. Joining the team and the broader Trek family will be the talented Maddie Munro from Colorado in the United States. Together, this team will tackle a busy European schedule of races.
Maddie Munro joins the team after an incredible finish to her Junior career, taking third place at World Championships. Now, the talented rider from Boulder, Colorado is looking towards her first year in the U-23 category. For Maddie, gaining experience is the name of the game. “For the upcoming CX season, since I will be a first-year U23 my main goal is to obtain as much World Cup level racing experience as possible and continuing to improve my skills on the CX bike.”
Jolanda Neff comes into the cyclocross season directly after key mountain bike races, and looks to build up as much racing as she can prior to the new Olympic year. “I would love to race the full cyclocross season, as I think it’s a unique opportunity with a late start to mountain bike racing this year,” says Jolanda.
British riders Evie Richards and Hattie Harnden will also take on numerous cross events this year, looking to continue their season and keep the fitness high. “I’m super excited for this ’cross season,” says Richards. “It will be so nice to get back racing and get that cross adrenaline going again with some amazing ladies! My main aims this season are to commit to doing more cross races, to sharpen up on some of my cyclocross skills and enjoy rolling around in lots of mud!”
Along with a new look for 2020 and 2021, Trek Factory Racing CX welcomes returning technical partners SRAM for drivetrain and braking, 100% for optics and gloves, and Santini for clothing. Bontrager will supply helmets, shoes, and wheels mounted with Challenge tires.
