Emily Marcolini Signs with DNA Pro Cycling for the Remainder of 2022by July 1, 2022
The DNA Pro Cycling team has announced the signing of Emily Marcolini to its 2022 roster. The 26-year-old Canadian cyclist will race with the team through the remainder of the year and is expected to be on the roster for DNA’s upcoming international stage races, Vuelta a Colombia Femenina and Tour Cycliste Féminin International de L’Ardèche.
A strong climber and breakaway rider, Marcolini demonstrated her talents this year with mountain stage wins on Oak Glen at the Redlands Yucaipa Stage as well as the famed Gila Monster stage at the Tour of the Gila. She is signing from the US domestic team, 3T/Q+M and previously rode with Team TIBCO/SVB.
“I am thankful to the 3T/Q+M team for giving me the opportunity to succeed this season,” said Marcolini, “and I am thrilled to jump back to the UCI level with the DNA Pro Cycling team, which is such a well-run organization with awesome riders.”
Marcolini, who hails from Sudbury, Ontario, joins two other Canadians on the DNA squad, Maggie Coles-Lyster and Kaitlyn Rauwerda.
“We are excited to have Marcolini join the team mid-season. Her unique strengths and experience will strengthen our team dynamic and increase our opportunities for success,” said Catherine Fegan-Kim, team co-owner and director.
