New Zealand TT champion Williams stays with Mitchelton-SCOTT in 2020

Mon 21 Oct 2019

New Zealand time trial champion Georgia Williams will remain with Mitchelton-SCOTT in 2020 after signing a new one-year deal.

Williams endured a difficult first half of the 2019 campaign, but came back strong in the second half, displaying her strength and ability as a valuable domestique for the squad.

The Kiwi will now head into her fourth year with the team next season and the 26-year-old is looking forward to joining up with her new teammates next year.

Georgia Williams:
I was super happy to sign, especially after not having such a good year, you’re always nervous about what the management and staff are thinking, so I’m super grateful to them for supporting me for another year.”

“I had a bit of a rough season, but I’m looking forward to putting that behind me, refocusing and sort of proving myself and making up for my not-so-good year. Winning the TT and road race at nationals would be cool and in the European races I’d like to be a good supporter in the Ardennes classics.”

“After meeting the new riders during the training camp, it’s super exciting, they all seem really nice and it will be super fun racing with different riders, teaching them and learning from them.”

Martin Vestby (Sports Director):
“Georgia has had quite a troubled season this season, but we still see the potential in her climbing ability and her role as a strong domestique in some of the harder races.”

“We see the capacity and the talent is there, it’s just about getting her in the right place and having a season without setbacks.”
