Ale BTC City Ljubljana has announced the signing of Marta Bastianelli. The Italian rider is returning to the team after one year in Virtu Cycling.

The Italian former World and European champion arrived to the team currently known as Ale Cipollini in 2016 and signed for Virtu for 2019. Bastianelli has now decided to return to the team in which she took the European title and victories in one stage of the Giro Rosa, Ghent-Wevelgem and the GP Liberazione.

The rider is currently in the United Kingdom, where she will take part on the road race of the World Championships of Yorkshire on September 28. "I have had various offers for the season 2020, but when Alessia Piccolo and Alé contacted me to come back I couldn't say no, this is a second family for me. I've found a deal that I will define better after the Worlds Championships, when the UCI will confirm what they promised, to accept the militar status in the Women's World Tour," she mentioned.

Alessia Piccolo, president of the team welcomed the return of Bastianelli. "We are very proud to have Marta back with us in the 2020 team. It's a very warm come back and we feel happy to have the Italian National Champion in the one and only Italian team in the Women's World Tour."
