Meet Cassia Boglio, the 21-year-old Australian cyclist who has taken the women's cycling world by storm.
In just a year, she has transitioned from racing on the domestic scene to making her debut in the European peloton. We are excited to announce that the promising young talent, Cassia Boglio, is joining Willing Coffee as a sponsored athlete. Let's take a closer look at her inspiring journey and how she has captured the attention of the cycling community.
From Triathlete to Cyclist: The Start of a New Path
Cassia's story began with a significant decision made during the pandemic. After racing in triathlons for over a decade, she felt the urge to switch to road cycling. Following her heart, she traded her triathlon aspirations for a new challenge on the roads. The transition proved to be the right move, and it opened up a world of opportunities she could never have imagined.
Joining AG Insurance-NXTG: A Step towards Greatness
In early 2021, Cassia's talent caught the eye of the ARA Pro Racing Team, and she joined them for the National Road Series. Her potential did not go unnoticed, and just three months later, she signed a one-year contract with AG Insurance-NXTG, an under-23 UCI Continental team. AG Insurance-NXTG's philosophy of providing equal chances for women's cycling and fostering young talent resonated with Cassia's goals and values.
Conquering Europe's Top-Tier Races
Cassia's journey with AG Insurance-NXTG led her to conquer some of the most prestigious European races, including Vuelta CV Feminas, GP Oetingen, Danilith Nokere Koerse, and the Women’s WorldTour-ranked Trofeo Alfredo Binda.
The Road Ahead
Cassia's unwavering commitment to her passion for cycling and her drive to succeed have earned her a reputation as one of the sport's rising stars. With the support of Willing as her major sponsor, including Willing Coffee and Bar Vino, Cassia is poised to continue her meteoric rise in the world of women's cycling.
