To encourage women's cycling, Trek Brazil will be entirely female with representatives in various disciplines.
Aligned with Trek’s push for equality in cycling and the new Trek-Segafredo professional women’s cycling team that started this year, Trek Brazil has gathered strong names to renew its Trek Brazil Racing team, now with all-women athletes.
“We already had great athletes in our team and when we started the selection of new members, we realized some talent without any support, among them, women with a lot of potential in different disciplines, which makes total sense with the objectives of Trek, to support cycling as a whole,” explained Rafael Niro, marketing manager at Trek Brazil.
The team is made up of experienced athletes and revelations from recent years:
Bia Neres, who has accumulated titles in the Olympic triathlon as World Military Champion and South American Vice-Champion, will represent Trek in the short distances and race for the Olympic spot.
Bruna Mahn was top 10 in the European and South American Ironman Championships in 2018 and is one of the most hopeful names to take Brazil to the Ironman World Championship in Kona in the women’s elite category.
Ana Luisa Panini, currently third place in the Brazilian ranking, has results including third place mixed team in 2016 and third place 2017 in Brazil Ride, continues with the Trek brand racing mountain bike marathon and XCO.
Luma Diniz arrives to Trek Brazil Racing focused on the XCO races. The athlete from Rezende, RJ, recently joined the MTB elite and already shown her potential.
Victoria Remaili will be the Trek representative in road cycling events and is preparing to repeat her super season of last year when she won the GFNY RJ title, and third place at Letape Brasil in Campos do Jordão.
We are very excited about this new direction of our professional team and with all the news that we will have for women this year. But that does not mean that we will leave men aside! Our actions aim to approach all cyclists and put more and more people into pedaling.
