Linda Villumsen joins Wiggle Honda Team

New Zealand time trial Champion to return to racing

Temporary break from racing leaves her eager to get going again

After a relatively short break from elite racing, Linda Villumsen is "eager to get back to speed and back to racing again. Im just really looking forward to racing again and I hope I can use this new energy and enthusiasm to convert into positive and good riding. Villumsen has joined Wiggle Honda Team.

The Kiwi, who took fourth place in the 2012 London Olympics time trial and the bronze medal in the 2012 Valkenburg individual time trial,  announced later in the year that she wished to step back from elite competition for a while. Despite that, she continued training and won the New Zealand National time trial Championships in January. 

Indeed, time trials are Villumsen's strength. She has been on the podium at the World Championships in each year since 2009 for her individual efforts and was also part of the silver medal winning Orica-AIS team time trial squad in Valkenburg.

Also capable in road races, Villumsen has previously won La Route de France (2006) and  Thueringen Rundfarht (2009). Her coach, BMC Racing Team rider, Marco Pinotti, has kept her busy with what she called "an alternative race free training programme" despite her lack of racing goals. That now changes whilst she follows a pathway back to the elite peloton.
