Transfer naar het Brentjens MTB team!

Het officiële persbericht is al even de deur uit maar ik wilde het nieuws toch niet onvermeld op mijn website voorbij laten gaan!
Ik ben heel erg blij te kunnen vertellen dat ik vanaf 2018 zal aansluiten bij het Bart Brentjens mountainbike team. Een team met veel ervaring en professionele begeleiding. Bovendien staat het team op het moment nummer
één op de UCI wereld ranglijst.

Ik sluit daarmee prachtig een hoofdstuk af. Twee jaar lang heb ik met heel veel plezier en succes voor het Habitat mountainbike team gereden. Het team, de begeleiding en mijn materiaal waren helemaal op mij afgestemd en zo kon ik de afgelopen seizoenen enorme stappen richting de wereld top maken. Ik wil Habitat heel erg bedanken.

Vorige week werd het nieuws dan eindelijk bekend. Hierbij het persbericht over mijn transfer.

We are very happy and proud to announce that ‘Dutch’ talent Anne Tauber, will join the Brentjens Team per January 2018. Anne Tauber, currently riding for the Habitat MTB Team had a strong 2017 season.
Anne won the Dutch National Champion title in the Women Elite category, she won the Bronze Medal at the European Championships Women U23 and finished 6th at the World Championships Women U23. Remarkably were her strong results this year in the UCI Worldcup Series. While still being a U23 rider, she decided to start in the Women Elite races with a 6th position finish as the best result.
Bart Brentjens, Team Director CST Sandd American Eagle MTB Racing Team:
“We are happy to welcome Anne in our Team. Anne has proven to be a real multi disciplinair athlete, with a great topsport character. She is driven and knows to set her goals! We are looking forward to work with Anne. Her ambition is the same as ours, winning a medal at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. We hope our Team will offer her the perfect environment to reach her goals!”
Anne Tauber, Dutch National Champion Mountainbike Women Elite:
“After my first year in Women Elite category I am eager to continue my progression in 2018. In order to do that I felt it was time for a new step in my career: next season I will be joining the Brentjens Mountainbike Racing Team! I am confident that Bart and his staff as well as the teammembers will help me a lot to fulfill my ambitions. I am looking forward to work with them! My goal for next year is to improve once more. I can hardly wait to start racing again and see what our cooperation will bring us in the future!
At the same time I say goodbye to team Habitat, the team that put faith in me two years ago. Back then I was a speed skater that wanted to transform into a mountainbiker. This team offered me all I could wish for: a warm team with excellent equipment. They gave me all the support I needed and all the freedom I wanted. I am very grateful for the opportunity they gave me, we had 2 fantastic years. I wish them all the best in the future.”
Maarten Kemperman, Team Manager Habitat MTB Team :
“ On behalf of Habitat Mountainbike Team, we wish Anne the very best with her 2018 chapter of her promising career. We hope she will continue to grow as she did the last two years in great harmony with Team Habitat. And, we like to see her further progress as the sparkling dutch Mountainbike ambassador as she is.”
