FDJ-Nouvelle Aquitaine-Futuroscope has announced the signing of Emilia Fahlin for the 2019 season. The current Swedish champion makes the move after being for two seasons in Wiggle High 5.

The rider has been at the highest level of the sport since 2007 and will bring that experience to the French team. Fahlin's palmares includes Swedish titles in the road race and the time trial, victories in races like the Crescent Women World Cup Vargarda and the Gracia Orlova, as well as a second position at the GC of the Ladies Tour of Norway.

"I’m super happy and excited for this new year and adventure that awaits in 2019!" the rider commented. "I feel like I’ve got such a positive vibe already, the team has been a solid one in women’s cycling for many years now and I have a lot of respect for that drive to keep on improving the team and for the work, they do for the women!

"Also, I felt such a big belief from the management on a personal level, to try and lift myself even further and build on what I’ve started showing this year; that I’m capable of racing for some big results in some types of races, and I think for me it will be really important to feel the support in my back to try and get some really nice results and fighting for some wins next year!"

Stephen Delcourt, Manager of the team, also showed his excitement about this new signing. "Emilia is one of the best cyclists in the world since many seasons and we are very proud to have convinced her with our project," he said. "Emilia is a winner and this is our weak point since several seasons, we are regular but we win a little.

"She will have the mission to win a classic in 2019 and bring to the collectif this rage to win that characterizes her. With Emilia, we join a little more in the world hierarchy with the goal of becoming a team that can win at every start of races, even the biggest races of the calendar."
