Lauretta Hanson arrives to the team after racing two years with the USA-based UnitedHealthcare team. With cycling opportunities limited in Australia, Lauretta opted to race in the USA for the past six seasons and now is making the next step to Europe with Trek-Segafredo. She is a strong all-rounder with a big engine and has embraced her role in supporting her teammates on UHC.  While the 24-year-old Australian is still developing and building her palmarès, she already has shown sparks with a 10th overall in the Tour of Qatar (2016) against a star-studded field, and this past year an unexpected time trial victory at the Tour de Feminin (Czech Republic). While helping her teammate win the overall classification, Lauretta still managed seventh place in the GC.
