The 19 year old Lonneke Uneken is the new signing for the Boels-Dolmans team for next season. Uneken is transferred from Hitec-products where she rode her first season with the elite women.
Uneken had a good season with some top 10 results in WWT races. Besides that she won the bronze medal during the European Championships for U23. Uneken describes herself as a sprintster for the classic races, a rider who wants to peak in the spring classics.
With her 19 years she is the youngest rider in the team. With Boels-Dolmans she wants to take the next step in her career. "I have learned a lot the last season, even more than I've expected. With the new team I hope to make even more progress. The Boels-Dolmans team is well known for its good organisation. I can learn a lot from my new teammates. I am looking forward to prepare with them for the new season. Also the attacking style of riding is appealing. I would like to make an important contribution to the team in every race I ride."
DS Danny Stam is also very pleased with the new signing. "The arrival of Uneken is great news for the team. I see her as a strengthening in the base of the team. With Lonneke we have a rider in our midst which will prove her strenght in the spring classics." Uneken has signed a contract for one year and is the 12th rider for the team for the 2020 season.
