UCI Women's WorldTeam

Fenix-Deceuninck

be flag

Fenix-Deceuninck are the newest addition to the Women’s WorldTour for 2023, being awarded the final available licence to bring the total to 15, as the UCI had envisioned when they launched the WorldTour in 2020. A sister team to the Alpecin-Deceuninck squad, the women’s team started in 2020 and was initially composed mainly of cyclo-cross riders, but has been slowly growing into a road team in its own right, culminating this year with the step up to the WorldTour.

The team still has a noticeable cyclo-cross identity, home to Ceylin del Carmen Alvarado, Sanne Cant and young superstar Puck Pieterse, but they’ve recruited a whole host of talented road racers too. They have the likes of Maria Martins and Kim De Baat for the fast finishes, and Julie De Wilde, Sophie Wright and Yara Kastelijn for the tougher races on the calendar.

The team have some way to go until they’re on the level of some of the biggest WorldTour contenders, but automatic invites to all the biggest races will definitely put them on the right path.
