Claudia Häusler im nächsten Jahr bei Argos-Shimano

The Team Argos-Shimano women’s team is pleased to announce that Claudia Häusler (GER) will join the team in 2014. With the arrival of Häusler, the team’s roster is now complete. Häusler, 27, is a world-class climber and GC rider. In her career she has won prestigious stage races such as the Giro Donne (2009), Tour de l’Aude (2009) and Iurreta-Emakumeen Bira (2010). In 2013 she raced for the US-based Team TIBCO, and finished third in the Giro Donne and fifth in the Holland Ladies Tour. Häusler said, “Of course as a rider you are always watching other teams, and one team I thought could be a good place for me was Team Argos-Shimano. I appreciate the team’s focus on helping riders develop in the sport. I have had good conversations with the team and I have a really good feeling about it, and that is important to me. I am looking forward to being back in Europe after my adventure in the United States. “As a stage race specialist, I will have as my major goal the Giro Donne, the biggest stage race in women’s cycling, and also the harder World Cups. I have had some difficult years recently, due to my studies and a hard crash in 2010, but I definitely want to repeat some of the successes I have had.” “We are happy that Claudia will be part of our team for the next two seasons,” said coach Ruud Verhagen (NED). “We started talking with her because we wanted to strengthen our roster with a climber. Claudia is a world-class climber, and we see a great natural fit with our team. Now, together with sprinter Kirsten Wild (NED) and our young talents, our team is complete for 2014.”
