Valentina Cavallar joins ARKEA-B&B HOTELS

The 23-year-old Austrian rower has signed a contract with the ARKEA-B&B HOTELS team. She will make her debut under her new colours at the Grand Prix de Chambéry on Sunday 14 April.

Valentina's words:

"I've been rowing for ten years. I started when I was 13, and my first international competition came four seasons later. It was the World Junior Championships. I was also selected in the coxless double for the Tokyo Olympics. We finished thirteenth. I won the Austrian individual champion title eleven times. But I've always dreamt of cycling competitively, at professional level. I recently went through a series of tests in Brittany with Gaël Le Bellec, which proved conclusive and led to the signing of a contract with ARKEA-B&B HOTELS. Cycling has been my great passion for three years now, and I've always enjoyed doing it alongside my rowing. My biggest dream is the Tour de France, and I'd like to shine in this event in the future. I hope that the ARKEA-B&B HOTELS team will be invited to take part in this race this summer. My cycling skills are above all those of a climber. I'm happy to be part of the development plan that the team staff want to give to the ARKEA-B&B HOTELS squad, and I'm going to do everything I can to make my contribution."
