Ella Harris has decided to extend her stay in Canyon-SRAM by signing a new contract for 2020.

The winner of the 2018 Canyon-SRAM Zwift Academy has proved her talents in her first year at a professional level: she topped the young rider classification at the Vuelta a Burgos, finished second in the youth classification at Emakumeen Bira and achieved a top-five place in the overall classification of the Colorado Classic.

"I'm really pleased and excited to be renewing with Canyon-SRAM for 2020," the 21-year-old commented. "I really love the team and feel completely comfortable and happy in the environment; it's without a doubt the best place for me to continue my development as a rider to become as good as I can be. The other riders, sponsors, staff and overall set up is incredible and beyond anything, I could have ever imagined being a part of!"

Ronny Lauke, Team Manager, commented on this extension. "Ella entered the UCI ranks in a fast-growing environment and within her first year as part of a UCI team, she made it into the top 20% of the sport, currently ranked 171," he commented. "As a young athlete she has much more to learn and we believe can develop further with time.

"Ella showed extreme commitment to the sport and was determined throughout the season to get the given job in a race done or go for own results. Most impressive was her willpower and the level of suffering she has shown to assure she can be the best possible teammate as well as reaching her goals. The expectations on her for 2020 are to see further development in terms of efficiency and tactical understanding."
