Lotta
Henttala

Lotta Henttala (formerly Lepistö) is an explosive sprinter and multi National Champion. She excels in technical courses and is also proficient in the time trial, winning five national titles along with her seven road titles. Lotta's first significant results came in 2016 with two bronze medals at the UCI World Championships in the road race and team time trial. Still, it was 2017 when she had a season to behold: first in Gent–Wevelgem, first in Crescent Vårgårda, first in the semi-Classic Dwars door Vlaanderen, and a stage six victory in the Giro d'Italia Femminile. Lotta won two races in 2019 but had to sit out a significant part of the season for health reasons, including her National Championships, where she was unable to defend her seven-year winning streak.
