Cervélo TestTeam announced today that they have signed German rider Charlotte Becker for the 2010 season.

The 26-year-old has both track and road experience. She's a former German national time trial champion as well as a European points champion on the track. Last season she won four races and finished third overall in the Giro della Toscana while riding for the now-defunct Equipe Nürnberger team.

"I saw Cervélo TestTeam last year and the team looked very professional. Now I'm proud to be a part of it and I'm looking forward to the upcoming season," said Becker. "I think is a really strong team and I want to help as much as I can. If I get the chance, I also want to go for some good results, especially in time trials, so I am really looking forward to using the Cervélo time trial bikes."

The director of the women's team was happy to have their late addition to the roster.

"Charlotte is a very good time trial rider and as well as being strong on the track, especially in the team pursuit. She will be a real asset to our team, as well as fighting for our own victories," said Egon van Kessel, Sports Director. "While it is a little late for signings, we are now able to offer the best possible program to the riders. For the team to perform at it's best, in all our target races, we needed one more rider. We are fortunate to secured Charlotte's talents."
