Shirin van Anrooij is a talent to be reckoned with in the Women’s World Tour peloton.

 

As with many athletes, Shirin started young. Her older sister Lindy had already followed in their mother footsteps by getting into bike racing, and Shirin wanted nothing more than to copy her sister, getting her first bike when she was six years old and starting racing as soon as she could. 

 

As a junior, Shirin won a national and world cyclocross title, and both national road titles. After showing this early form, Shirin was offered the chance to join Lidl Trek (then Trek-Segafredo) at the age of 18. After a period as a stagiaire in 2020, Shirin earned a neo-pro contract and joined the team with the likes of Lizzie Deignan and Elisa Longo Borghini as her teammates in her first year in the elite ranks. 

 

Shirin splits her time across both cyclocross and the road, and it’s no secret that combining the two disciplines is certainly a balancing act. With the support of the team around her, Shirin seems to have taken this in her stride and has claimed world medals in both. 

 

In 2022 Shirin enjoyed a phenomenal season on the road with a 9th place in Strade Bianche, and was selected for the inaugural Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift. She was riding in support of team leader, Elisa Longo Borghini, and in the process she came home with the leaders jersey in the Young Rider classification. Van Anrooij is also an accomplished time triallist with national and European titles in both the junior and U23 categories

 

The 2022-2023 season in cyclocross, riding for Baloise Trek Lions, saw Shirin win her first ever World Cup race, which was followed by two more in quick succession. With a seventh place in Tábor the only odd one out, Van Anrooij finished on the podium in every race and finished the season winning the U23 World title in Hoogerheide. 

 

Shirin them moved seamlessly to the road for the 2023 season and soon won her first WorldTour victory at Trofeo Binda, a podium place at Amstel Gold and a silver medal in Glasgow at the UCI Road World Champs in the U23 road race - she’s certainly one to watch.
