Team Hitec Products are happy to announce that Ann Helen Olsen will join the team in 2021. Olsen recently crowned herself as the new Norwegian U23 champion, finishing in fifth place total in the combined race with the elite category. The 22 years old rider is the first new signing of the Norwegian UCI-team for next season.
“I am very excited and honoured about the opportunity to be riding for a team like Team Hitec Products”, Olsen says about signing her first contract with an UCI-team. “One of my main goals has been to join a team where I can further develop, and I think Team Hitec Products will be a good fit for my progression as a cyclist. A lot will be new to me at the team, but fortunately I already know most of the Norwegian riders on the team.”
As Olsen is still young, her focus is on getting a better rider. “I am eager and motivated to learn as much as possible from the team, the other athletes and the management. My goal is to make an effort that both the team and I are satisfied with. I hope and believe that within a few years, with a good training regime and race program, I will be able to climb to a higher level. Time will show which level I will reach, but I am very motivated to put down the work and effort it takes to achieve the highest level possible.”
