Susanne Andersen is a UCI Women’s WorldTeam rider for Team Uno-X. She is a fast and punchy rider and a valued member of the women’s peloton.
Susanne has been into sport since a very young age playing football, and recognising her desire to win. Susanne soon got into cycling after borrowing a bike from a local cycling club, and once she felt the freedom of two wheels, she was hooked.
Success began in 2015 Susanne when was Norwegian National Junior Champion in the ITT and cyclo-cross and runner up in the road race. The following year, she followed up with a double win in 2016 in both the ITT and road race, and also rode to a 3rd place podium in the road race at the Junior UCI World Championships in Doha.
In 2017, Susanne progressed to be an elite rider in the peloton, and her performances did not disappoint. Susanne came 7th in the World Championships road race in Bergen, a very impressive result and set the bar for things to come. Susanne also won silver in the U23 European Championships in Herning, so a great season all round.
In 2019 Susanne joined Team DSM (previously Team Sunweb). During these years she gained confidence and motivation to both be a leader where she is always out to impress, and also work for her teammates – particularly in the lead outs where she was an integral member of the lead out train.
2022 saw Susanne take the opportunity to join Uno X, as a new team in the peloton. Each and every race she enjoys pulling on the yellow and red jersey colours of Uno X to do her best – particularly during the Classics, which are her favourite events in the calendar.
Susanne has been excited to continue success with the team into the 2023 season, and also won the Norwegian National Championships in June 2023 so is honoured to wear the national jersey out on the road.
