The Kross Racing Team has announced that Swiss athlete Jolanda Neff has joined.
Currently leading the 2016 UCI rankings, Neff was the first gold medalist from the 2015 European Games in Baku and two-time World Cup Champion (2014,2015). She will start on the KROSS Level B+, the brand’s new 7.9kg carbon hardtail. She will also have full access to the engineers at KROSS who over the last two years developed the current Level B+ together with Maja Włoszczowska for her race in Rio de Janiero.
“I am more than excited to join the Kross Racing Team. Maja Włoszczowska and Fabian Giger have already been my teammates in the past and I have nothing but great memories with them,” said Neff. “I am really looking forward to working together with the whole team. The mechanic, physio, photographer and team manager are all very professional. I can’t wait to develop my skills as a rider and become a part of the bike development at Kross."
Kross marketing manager Arek Trzciński said: “We are very happy and excited that Jolanda wants to join our team. Kross is growing fast and we have momentum at the moment thanks to a strong UCI season and a silver medal in Rio de Janiero. Having Jolanda race on our bikes next to Maja, Fabian and Bartek is another milestone for the company. KRT Manager, Tomek Świerczyński has successfully established a well functioning team with a great atmosphere. We are certain Jolanda will fit in perfectly.”
