Lotte Claes to join ARKEA-B&B HOTELS in 2024

Belgian climber Lotte Claes will join the ranks of the ARKEA-B&B HOTELS women’s team.

In the words of Lotte Claes:

“I come from a duathlon background, and chose cycling three seasons ago. I like difficult races with a mountainous profile, and it’s on these types of courses that I express myself best. I’m sure that the ARKEA-B&B HOTELS team will be a good match for me, as its race programme includes a number of events with mountainous profiles, both one-day and stage races. I like the state of mind, the cohesion within the team and the way they race. I also know a few of the riders in the squad, so I’ll be able to fit in very quickly from 1 January 2024. Everything in this structure is professional, and that’s something you appreciate when you’re a high-level athlete.

Emmanuel Hubert, Manager Général

“Lotte Claes is a Belgian rider. She’s a climber who has already demonstrated her qualities in this field. In fact, she recently distinguished herself at the European Women’s Climbing Championship, held on the Tremola road on the Gotthard Pass in Switzerland, taking 4th place. But like any Belgian from Flanders, she also knows how to ride in a peloton and find her place. Lotte will be an excellent addition to the ARKEA-B&B HOTELS Women’s team.”
