Soraya Paladin Italy

“I’m super excited to join the team. It will be the right step for my growth and I’m ready for this experience. I know I will find a solid and ambitious group of riders surrounded by professional staff, with values and commitment on and off the bike,” describes Soraya.

CANYON//SRAM Racing Team Manager, Ronny Lauke, says, “We believe Soraya hasn’t unleashed her full potential yet. We want to help her to do so. In recent years she has established herself amongst the best riders in selective one-day classic races. She has the qualities to be within the final selection of any type of classics race and has some speed towards the finish line. We believe Soraya is a great addition to be alongside Kasia who often was our last rider to contest the final in many races.”

Soraya said she targets a Women’s World Tour victory with the team next season.

“My first goal of 2022 will be to gain the trust of my teammates. Then, I would like to win one World Tour race. I’m the kind of rider that really likes to sacrifice herself for the team. Classic races suit me and when I’m in shape I can survive quite long climbs. Like most of the peloton, if I could choose just one race to win then it would be Flanders. I’m looking forward to enjoying next year as much as possible and of course to win—personal victories or team victories doesn’t matter.”

In her eighth season as a professional, Soraya brings experience and motivation to the team and is set on making the most of her career.

“Cycling teaches a lot of the values of life. Every day, I do a lot of sacrifices and efforts to be a pro cyclist. But it’s always worth it. Even when it’s not always going as planned, if you never give up, you become stronger, both as a rider and as a person. As a pro rider, I have the opportunity to wake up every morning and be able to follow my dream. It motivates me to always push myself past my limits. I’m looking forward to doing this with CANYON//SRAM in 2022.”
