Biography

Annemiek van Vleuten (born 8 October 1982) is a Dutch road racing cyclist, who currently rides for UCI Women's WorldTeam Mitchelton–Scott.

In 2011, she won the UCI Women's Road World Cup and in 2018 she was the UCI Women's World Tour winner. She is the 2017 and 2018 winner of the time trial at the UCI Road World Championships. In 2018 she won both the points and the overall ranking in the Giro Rosa, considered the most prestigious stage race of the women's road cycling calendar. Only two days later she took the crown at the fifth edition of La Course by Le Tour de France, a high-profile women's cycling race held in France, on 17 July 2018, prolonging her 2017 title.

In 2019, she became the UCI Road Race World Champion.

Career

Together with Ellen van Dijk, Marianne Vos and Loes Gunnewijk, van Vleuten represented The Netherlands in the Women's road race at the 2012 Summer Olympics, which was won by Vos. She also competed in the 2015 European Games for the Netherlands, in cycling, more specifically, the women's time trial; van Vleuten won a bronze medal.

On 7 August 2016, while leading the road race at the 2016 Olympic Games, van Vleuten crashed head first on the descent from Vista Chinesa after missing the brake timing of a sharp bend, 12 km (7.5 mi) before the finish. The crash resulted in her being hospitalised with three lumbar spinal fractures and a severe concussion. Though she was out of the race due to severe injuries, her team-mate Anna van der Breggen took home the gold medal for the Netherlands. Despite her injuries, van Vleuten was riding a bicycle within ten days of her accident and made a winning return to competition one month later, taking the overall victory and two stage wins at the 2016 Lotto Belisol Belgium Tour.

In 2017 van Vleuten became the ITT World Champion in Bergen, an achievement she repeated the following year in Innsbruck.

2018 was a very successful year for van Vleuten as she won the Giro Rosa, La Course by Le Tour de France and the final classification of the UCI Women's World Tour. She ended the 2018 season with a total of 13 victories.

In 2019 she became the World Road Race champion in Harrogate where she rode solo for 100 km of the 149km race holding back the chasing groups.
