Anne Tauber will spend the run-up to the 2021 Olympics riding with her CST PostNL Bafang MTB Racing teammates. Tauber, who has ridden with the team since 2018, has signed for an additional two years, through 2021-2022. She was the first mountain biker to qualify for next year’s Dutch Olympic team, clinching her spot at last year’s UCI XCO World Cup in Albstadt, Germany.
CST PostNL Bafang director Bart Brentjens is pleased that she’s staying with the team: “Our team’s sportive ambition is still to win a medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games in 2021…The Olympic Games 2024 in Paris are still a long way off, but also in both our view and intention to work towards together. As we look back, Anne made and is still making enormous progression as a professional mountain biker. With her mentality, she has the capacity to [be one of] the best mountain bikers of the world…Anne is a very positive spirit. Anne knows how to focus and to set goals. She has character and is able to deal with all kinds of circumstances. We are happy to follow our Olympic road together,” said Brentjens.
Tauber is just as pleased to extend her time with CST PostNL Bafang. “The team has offered me everything I could ask for, and we have been working together in a great atmosphere; it really feels like a family to me,” she said. “The results of the past two years have proven that the cooperation between us is successful…Even though the current circumstances concerning Covid-19 are difficult, we can move forward and focus on what is important to us: making progress! And of course, our ultimate goal is set in Tokyo in 2021!”
