Team dsm-firmenich

nl flag

This Dutch team started out in 2011 as the women’s branch of the men’s WorldTour team. Throughout their history, dsm-firmenich has built a reputation for developing young riders, often signing talented riders straight out of the junior ranks. Many of the riders that have gone through dsm-firmenich’s system have enjoyed great success in the sport, including Floortje Mackaij, Coryn Labecki and most recently, Lorena Wiebes.

Unsurprisingly, Wiebes' departure for SD Worx was the team’s biggest loss this year, but they also said goodbye to Floortje Mackaij, Liane Lippert and Leah Kirchmann at the end of 2022. However, despite the losses, the team still has the likes of top-five finisher at the Tour de France Femmes Juliette Labous, sprinter Charlotte Kool and developing Classics riders Pfeiffer Georgi and Megan Jastrab in its ranks.

Though the team is a young one - and even younger with the signing of three juniors and four WorldTour debutants for 2023 - but they’re certainly not lacking in talent, and if their tried-and-tested system continues to work, they won’t have an issue developing this squad into successful racers.
