Neve is the winner of the fifth edition of the CANYON//SRAM Zwift Academy, a virtual talent identification program on the online training and racing platform. A season of living and racing with her new team in Europe awaits, but not before admitting she will take a few moments to grasp her achievement and who her new teammates will be.
“I always had Tiffany Cromwell as my idol and now here I am going to be a professional cyclist and in the same team as Tiffany. It’s so exciting. I’m stoked to have a coach, to use all of the equipment, and just to experience as much as I can. I know there’s a lot to learn and improve on but I’ll just try to help the team as much as I can.”
“I only decided to do the Zwift Academy quite late after a friend suggested I should. I had been in lockdown in Melbourne and doing a lot of Zwift and I thought why not have a go and see what happens. I’m so glad I did.”
CANYON//SRAM Racing Aerodynamicist and Performance Engineer, Dan Bigham said, “Neve has impressed across every performance trial thrown at her. She’s proven that aside from her world class physiology, she has the tactical cleverness and race winning mindset required to succeed in the Women’s World Tour. I look forward to working with her in the coming season and helping her to achieve her potential on the road.”
