Niamh Fisher-Black's signing of a two-year contract generated great satisfaction among the members of the technical staff. This champion from New Zealand is only 20 years old and comes to us from Équipe Paule Ka. "It's only a matter of time before Fisher-Black establishes herself as one of the absolute world leaders on climbs", says Stam. "She surprised everyone in the Giro Rosa in 2020. She has a tremendously athletic body and she impressed our riders with how she handled the tricky bits. I'm convinced she will continue to make a lot of progress in our team."
The New Zealander was pleasantly surprised to be approached by Team SD Worx. "I still have to discover my possibilities as a cyclist", she says with great modesty. "Everyone in the peloton sees how dominant Boels-Dolmans can be on rides. I'm very proud to be part of this winning team. I think it will be an ideal learning opportunity for me."
Fisher-Black hopes to prove herself mainly in the tougher competitions. "I'm at my best during stage races and classics with lots of climbs. I was very pleased to already be riding the Giro Rosa this year. That I made it to second place in the final stage gave me huge satisfaction. It also goes to show that I recover well from heavy exertion."
