Dani Rowe (née King) joins Marianne Vos for 2018 joining the Woawdeals Pro Cycling team

Dani Rowe (née King) has announced that she will be riding for the Woawdeals Pro Cycling team, formerly known as WM3 Pro Cycling, for the 2018 season.

The Brit will move across from the Cyclance Pro Cycling team at the end of the season, hoping to add fire power to a team that already contains Marianne Vos.

Rowe impressed at this year's World Championships, acting as one of the many animators in a British team that seemed to be constantly attacking in the Elite Women's Road Race.

This performance reinforced her ninth at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and 10th at the Tour de Yorkshire.

The Olympic track gold medalist is currently enjoying her honeymoon, after recently marrying Matt Rowe - brother of Team Sky's Luke Rowe - but is looking forward to constantly improving on the road with a particular focus on the Commonwealth Games.

'My career as a road cyclist is still young. This year, I have ridden many races for the first time and I hope to prove next year that I have improved as a road cyclist and that I am more experienced,' Rowe said.

'I also want to be strong for the Commonwealth Games.'

From next season, Rowe will become a teammate of Vos, the multiple cross-discipline World Champion. Vos has struggled to perform to her best since injury backpegged the Dutchwoman yet the team will be hoping that Rowe will bring the best back out of Vos.

The similarities between Rowe and Vos are there to be seen with both boasting Olympic gold as well as rainbow jerseys from the track.

These parallels were spoken about when team manager Eric van den Boom announced Rowe's signing.

'She is determined to advance to the top and we believe she is capable,' said van den Boom.

'Her achievements are not just anybody’s. The similarities with Marianne Vos are striking. Both became Olympic champion in 2012, and in 2011, Marianne and Dani took gold and bronze at the World Track Championships in the Scratch Race.'
