Olga Zabelinskaya is a former Junior ITT World Champion and U23 European ITT Champion and a winner of a Tour de L’Aude stage in 2006. The next years saw her on hiatus from competitive cycling to start a family. She returned in 2010 from her maternity leave after having two children. The first part of the season didn’t go well as Olga was knocked over by a car, but she came back strongly with the overall win in the prestigious Thüringen Rundfahrt. Olga is a strong contender for the GC in stage races and her strength in timetrialing will be called upon at the World Championships as RusVelo contends for the win in the team time trial. She adds valued experience to the team, and no doubt will be called upon as team leader in many races this season.
