'It's time to go back to racing' - Ellen van Dijk returns to competition in Spain

Ellen van Dijk will make her return to racing at the Vuelta Extremadura Féminas, held from March 8-10 in Spain. The Lidl-Trek rider hasn’t raced in 18 months, having taken time away from the sport to give birth to her first child, and said that while much as changed in her life outside of cycling, she is excited to return to the peloton.

“I am very excited to finally rejoin the team and be back racing after around 18 months without it. I have been training for most of that time but a lot has happened in between and so much has also changed in my life outside cycling. While I am really happy to finally go back to racing, I am also, of course, curious as to where I stand at the moment,” Van Dijk said.
