Spanish residing British cyclist, Molly Weaver will be making the move from Team Sunweb to Drops Cycling for the 2018 season.

Earlier this season, Molly suffered a devastating crash which left her with five broken vertebrae, four ribs, a crushed chest as well as injuries to her back and shoulder. At first, healthcare professionals feared paralysis and had almost written off her cycling career.

However, Molly's strong character and sheer determination have seen the 23-year-old athlete get back on the bike and pull out some impressive results as she has already completed full races this season and three races at World Tour level.
