Junior Cycling Sensation Simone Boilard Joins TWENTY20 Pro Cycling

Simone Boilard will make her professional debut in 2019, having signed with TWENTY20 Pro Cycling to launch her professional cycling career. Boilard is one of Canada’s rising talents, showing another year of improvement. Boilard has made the steady climb through the junior ranks, closing out her junior racing earning a bronze medal in the hard fought junior women’s road race at the UCI Road World Championships in Innsbruck, Austria and a strong 5th place in the individual time trial. Boilard showed composure and consistency as well as power and strength on the world stage last month, proving she has the skills and desire for the professional peloton.

“While Simone is only 18, she has been competitive since age three," says Twenty20 General Manager Nicola Cranmer. "She is very mature for her age and will easily transition into the professional ranks. She fits the mission of the team in both high performance and development. She has the same drive that both teammates Chloe Dygert and Jennifer Valente had at age 18. I am thrilled to be working with her. We will script a balanced season for her so she can also remain focused on her education as well as developing as an elite athlete.”

Boilard lives in Quebec and grew up with a “beat the boys” attitude. Determined, focused and a love for being outdoors, Boilard found cycling balanced well with skiing in the winter and the competitive fire was lit. Boilard has made improvements each season, both in her strength and also in her fitness adaption. These calculated improvements are instrumental to a developing female athlete. Boilard continued the progression this season, improving on her 8th at the 2017 UCI World Championships in Bergen.

“I very happy to be included on the TWENTY20 roster," says Boilard. "I believe I share the same values as the team, which is always looking for excellence and hard work in both sport and academic domains. I chose the TWENTY20 program because I believe that it provides a great learning environment for me. Providing great mentors and role models inspires an ideal environment for women cyclists. Their knowledge will help me reach the highest level of cycling by giving me the opportunity to do a progressive transition from Junior to Elite,” said Boilard.

Boilard will have the opportunity to work on her tactical and technical skills and gain valuable race experience. With a balanced roster of young talent and experienced leaders, the setup is ideal for Boilard, who will also continue her educational goals.

“In my family, education has always been a priority," added Boilard. "My mom was a high school principal for many years and now she is directing a school board. I love bike racing because it is my passion. I am aware that there will be a life after bike racing. This is why I am doing full-time Cegep online. I am very self-motivated and it requires a lot of discipline but it’s also a great challenge. Plus, I always have something to do when I am on the road waiting for the next training ride or race.”
