Katarzyna Niewiadoma might be the first name that comes to mind when we talk about the team Canyon// SRAM racing but there is nothing more wrong.
Indeed, the German team has proven in 2022 that there is much much more to them than the Polish Superstar.
She might be running after her first victory for more than 2 years but she remains as much if not more competitive.
The Tour de France was a proof that she became more aggresive.
In the women’s classics series, she was 6th best at 24 points.
While she seems a good option restrospetively, women racing is something else.
Wild and unexpected and unless it is Annemiek Van Vleuten climbing, it very often comes down to a sprint and Kasia has rarely proven to be the best at it.
Always present in Stage races, she remains a candidate for the podium.Verdict 2023: At 28, she is improving but the margin in Women Cycling is so little among the very best that every 2 coins might end up being 200 points difference in velogames and yet 2 seconds in the race.Elise Chabbey: The Swiss has slowly but surely grown into form this season.
Not the best of climber, she has been at the edge of top 10 in the Giro and The Tour.
At 14, she proved to be a good choice in the classics at time.Verdict 2023: While he did have a good season, the improvement in the all rounder abilities of riders like Lianne Lippert and Elisa Longo Borghini will make it hard for her.
The dutch was having a deafening run of performances starting in the Amstel Gold race.
She went to podium in Itzulia and the Tour de Suisse.
She then had a deceiving Tour de France and never showed any form.
Rated at 10 only in the classics she was a really good addition particularly in the second part of the classics.Verdict 2023: She will probably again be a cheaper option that the regulars. But the moment she shows she has the form to challenge them, there is nothing else to do that adding her to your Velogames,
The Italian has been around for some time now. While she has been struggling for form for a year, she has finally shown a glimpse of light in the Tour de Romandie and was even on the best possible Velogames team.Verdict 2023: we could say that she will be more useful in helping Niewiadoma but that is not ow women cycling works. She will continue to work on improving her form on her own.
Priced at 4 for the Giro Donne, she was the best option in that range due to her finishing 10th overall.Verdict 2023: At 20, she is bound to improve but is always bound to under a slight price raise.
Riders to Follow : Mikayla Harvey: After a promising few years, she seems to be lacking at where we expected her to be. Overpriced in Velogames 2022, she will undergo downgrade.
