Trek–Segafredo is a professional cycling team that competes in elite road bicycle racing events such as the UCI Women's World Tour.

History[edit]

In July 2018, Cyclingnews reported that a new UCI Women's team would be set up by the same management as the men's UCI WorldTeam Trek–Segafredo program.[1] Days later the team announced that Boels–Dolmans rider Lizzie Deignan would lead the team.[2] The following month Elisa Longo Borghini (Wiggle High5) confirmed that she would also be joining the team.[3]

In August Ina-Yoko Teutenberg announced that she would be directing the newly announced team as their head directeur sportif.[4] The same month Giorgia Bronzini announced that she would retire at the end of the season and become a DS with the team in 2019.[5]

In September, news broke that the team had secured further sponsorship from the Massimo Zanetti Beverage Group, owner of the Italian coffee brand Segafredo, in a deal covering a two-year co-title partnership. The women's team will now be known as Trek–Segafredo, like the men's.[6]
