As we pass the halfway mark in our presentation of Sunsport Velos 2017 roster it is time to meet the most cosmopolitan member of the squad.
Twenty seven year old Gabriella Nordin was brought up in Sweden to a Swedish father and American mother before touching down in Maidenhead to make her mark on the UK cycling scene. She signs from Starley Racing for whom she has put some strong performances in with this season.
Although slight of frame she possesses a level of endurance that lends itself to stage racing, evidenced this season by her fine fifth place on gc in the Ta’Malta where she was also top placed GB rider.
She will look again at stage races next season particularly overseas and is also seeking a shot at the Swedish National Road Race title.
A preseason interview is on the cards and someone with this interesting a background needs to be in the Who is….? Hot seat before too long.
