Anna Shackley is starting her third season with Team SD Worx. "My goal is to be even more present in the finals to help my teammates win. I am especially looking forward to the Spanish block, which always suits me. I want to continue the line and develop further as a rider."
Sports manager Danny Stam expresses confidence in the Scottish talent. "Anna Shackley has taken a super step in 2022, as a rider, but also as a person. She has shown tremendous progression, while also experiencing setbacks. For instance, she had to miss the Giro d'Italia Donne due to a corona infection, yet her autumn was very strong. She had several top-ten results recorded. Hopefully she will build on this."
Shackley is a rider who comes into her own in the tougher races. "I hope to become a better GC rider. Coming out for Team SD Worx is already an advantage. We are always still in the finals with several riders and so we can play the team game. Before the season we do several team build-ups, so we already know each other well before the races start. That makes it easier to ride as a team."
This year's world championships will take place in Glasgow, Shackley's home town. "I am very much looking forward to riding the World Championship on the roads where I grew up. You bet I have that date ticked in my diary."
