Giorgia Bronzini will depart from Trek-Segafredo and move into a new sports director’s role at Liv Racing in 2022. The former double world champion brings decades of bike racing expertise along with three years of top-tier directing experience to the Women’s WorldTeam.
The team has also hired former Dutch pro cyclist Wim Stroetinga as sports director and performance manager, as part of a revamped sports management team.
“After my career as a professional cyclist, I immediately got into the team’s car. For three years I had the opportunity to work with many world-class riders. I am very grateful to Trek-Segafredo for that. But I notice that it is now time to go for a new challenge. I want to play a more important role in training upcoming talents. I want to be closer to the personal trainers of the riders, work more closely with the performance management and thus be of even bigger value to the riders," Bronzini said.
"At Liv Racing there is plenty of room for this within the newly developed coaching structure. The aim is to improve the individual riders and to ride race finals with them. I want to put everyone in a position to win. In this way we want to raise the overall level of the team. The long-term goal is to structurally compete for wins in big UCI Women’s WorldTour races.”
