Barbara Guarischi (32) is new to Team SD Worx and signed a contract until 2024 with the Dutch team. The 32-year-old Italian competed for Movistar, Team Virtu and Canyon/SRAM, among others, in recent years. "With the arrival of Lorena Wiebes, we were looking for reinforcements to prepare the sprint," Stam stressed. "We never had a real sprint train, but now a lead-out train for Lorena is necessary. With Elena Cecchini, Christine Majerus, Lonneke Uneken and Barbara Guarischi, we have riders who are suitable for this. Barbara is an experienced rider who knows how to choose position in a sprint. She is going to play an important role in that sprint train."
