The Boels-Dolmans Cycling Team
Boels Rental and Dolmans Landscaping Group joined forces in 2012 to support an international women's cycling team. Consequently the Boels-Dolmans Cycling Team was born. The team progressed quickly since then and is now the best women's team in the world. All of the team's riders are a constant force to be reckoned with in the global cycling scene.
An exceptional performance was achieved in September 2018, for the fourth time in a row a rider of the Boels-Dolmans Cycling Team became world road champion. In 2015, Lizzie Deignan became the team’s first world champion in Richmond, USA, with current teammates Anna van der Breggen and Megan Guarnier on the podium with her. A year later, Amalie Dideriksen was the fastest in a bunch sprint, already having been double world champion during her junior years. In 2017 Chantal Blaak could celebrate her world champion title already before she crossed the finishline in Bergen. Amalie Dideriksen completed this great win with a bronze medal. Last year Anna van der Breggen took on an impressive way the worlds title in innsbruck. A great crown on an already very impressive season for Van der Breggen.
However there were more great results for the team in 2018. The team won Strade Bianche, Ronde van Drenthe, Tour of Flanders, Amstel Gold Race, Fleche Wallon, liege-Bastogne-Liege and the GP Plouay. With these victories the overal win in the Women's World Tour was secured.
For the 2019 season the Boels-Dolmans Cycling team has strenghten themselves with no less than four new signings: Jolien D'hoore (Bel), Katie Hall (USA), Eva Buurman (Ned) and Annika Langvad (Den).
D'hoore, Hall, Buurman and Langvad team in 2019 up with the following riders, who were already part of the team in 2018: Amalie Dideriksen (Den), Jip van den Bos (Ned), Anna van der Breggen (Ned), Chantal Blaak (Ned), Christine Majerus (Lux), Karol-Ann Canuel (Can), Skylar Schneider (USA), and Amy Pieters (Ned). The main goal in 2019 is to go after the victory in the most important races on the calendar again. And with the combination of experience and talent, dedicated riders and team management, together with the support and enthusiasm of the sponsors, to remain a household name in international women's cycling.
