Tenniglo’s team priority the perfect asset for Mitchelton-SCOTT in 2019Wed 17 Oct 2018
30-year-old Moniek Tenniglo will join the Mitchelton-SCOTT women’s squad in 2019, motivated to be a super domestique for the team’s established leaders.
The Dutch rider rode for WM3 Energie in 2017, where she rode a support role to assist the team to four Tour victories, before joining FDJ Nouvelle Aquitaine Futuroscope in 2018. This commitment to team goals and selfless attitude is set to be a huge asset to Mitchelton-SCOTT for the next season.
“I am really happy and excited to be joining Mitchelton-SCOTT. It’s a team with a great team spirit and that’s why it makes it really exciting for me, because I think I am a rider who works well within a team and I enjoy playing a strong supporting role. That’s where I feel I am most valuable.”
“That’s a big part of why I am looking forward to being part of this team with these riders and so much quality within the squad. It’s a really professional set up throughout the organisation and that’s great for me.”
Sport director Martin Vestby:
“Moniek is a very strong team player and she is a rider with good versatility and someone we can use in a lot of different races. She is going to be important for us as a support rider and brings a lot of experience with her from a lot of different races whilst also being able to handle a busy race schedule.”
“We’re really happy to have Moniek on board for 2019, she is a trustworthy rider with good physical condition and her strongest value for the team is her ability to sacrifice herself for the team goals without placing too much emphasis on personal objectives.
“I am quite impressed that her biggest goal is to be the strongest possible team player or domestique within the squad and if we can help her achieve that then it’s a win-win situation all round.”
