Team Hitec Products – Birk Sport are happy to announce the arrival of seven new partners for the 2021 cycling season. From them, Pump Supply will have the biggest role and have a prominent place on the team kit, together with Hitec Products. The other new partners are Jensen & Scheele Bil, Monkey Pumps, Hydraulic International, Morgan Blue, Valnor and Qing Yang Cave. Earlier Liv/Giant stepped in as the new bike sponsor for 2021. The official team name will be Team Hitec Products.
This year Ann Helen Olsen (22) became the Norwegian U23 champion, taking a fifth place in the elite race, just one place behind Team Hitec Products rider Vita Heine. With that, she again showed good form. Next season Anne Helen also hopes to do that in the Team Hitec Products jersey. Time to get to know her, as unlike other young girls there are not many results to find from her. “For many years I played football and did track and field.”
With Caroline Andersson, Team Hitec Products for the first time since 2014 has a Swedish rider in it’s team. In the past Emma Johansson and Emilia Fahlin were the two most successful riders for the team, who came from the Scandinavian neighbouring country of Norway. Caroline hopes to do the same. “In ten years from now I would like to be known as one of the best female riders for the classics”, she shows her ambition.
Winning both the Norwegian title in the time trial and the road race, next to some national races, 2020 was a good year for Anne Dorthe Ysland. However, it wasn’t what she had hoped her last year as a junior rider would look like, as there were no international races. “I had high ambitions for the world championships”, she says. Next season Anne Dorthe will join Team Hitec Products. In this interview we speak with her about her last year as a junior, joining the team and more.
With seven new riders on a total of twelve riders, Team Hitec Products will have a new look in the 2021 season. A young group of riders, with an average age of 21 years and 4 months at this moment, is eager to show themselves. In the upcoming period, we talk with the new riders of Team Hitec Products. Starting with Martine Gjøs, who is actually not totally new, as she already joined the team in September. “I looked up to this team when I was younger.”
One week after announcing their team roster for 2021, Team Hitec Products has decided to add an extra rider to their squad. The 19 years old Norwegian talent Mari Mohr also joins the team next season. As a junior Mohr won the Norwegian road race cup in 2019, with a total of five race wins. She also became national champion cyclocross last year. With her addition, Team Hitec Products now has twelve riders for 2021, ten of whom are under the age of 23.
