As a domestique, I have been involved in setting up a number of victories in the past, but my recent successes on the track have also motivated me to strive to achieve even more on the road. I would be keen to take on more leadership roles when the opportunity arises, and take the team to new successes next season."

Team Manager Thomas Campana welcomed the signing of Leth. "We’ve been interested in signing Julie for quite some time, and so we’re pleased to have her in the team next year," he explained. "She is the current European Madison champion and will also be racing on the track next season. Julie is ready for the next level and I believe that she still wants to grow.
