Optum p/b Kelly Benefit Strategies has announced that one more rider will be joining the women's team for the 2016 season.

"Catherine is one of the best young riders in Canada at the moment," said Performance Director Jonas Carney. "We were impressed by some of her results given that she is only 19 years old. The decision was made even easier because she is coached by an old friend of the team, Pierre Hutsebaut. We hope to collaborate and create a program that will help Catherine reach the next level."
