Anna Shackley is still only 22 but is already starting her fourth season in Team SD Worx-Protime colours. Shackley was good for a podium finish at both the World Road Championship in Glasgow and the European Road Championship at VAM Mountain in the U23. She wants to reinforce those successes with some strong results in 2024. "Those podium finishes at the championships are a huge boost. I am happy that I could still end the season on a positive note. Because although 2023 was perhaps the best season ever for the team, for me personally it was a bummer year. I started well in the UAE Tour, but had to deal with a knee injury in the spring that dragged on for a long time. The end of the season was good though, so I hope to continue on the same lines in 2024."
"I am convinced that at Team SD Worx-Protime I am in the ideal environment to develop myself further. Our team leaders Danny Stam, Anna van der Breggen and Lars Boom are very approachable. They let you think for yourself, but also give you tips to do better every time. This group is special. Everyone has the same goal and we go through fire for each other. I hope to make that extra progression again in 2024."
Sports manager, Danny Stam, sees in Anna Shackley a rider who can perform strongly in the tougher classics and stage races. "Thanks to her physique, Anna is strong in hilly work. In the future, I see her riding among the first in the tougher races. She is not super explosive yet, but we hope to develop that further. Anna is a rider who grows slowly and takes steps every year. That comes with trial and error. Although 2023 was difficult as she was struggling with a knee injury for so long, she still managed to end the season with a positive vibe. That gives confidence for 2024."
