Like some other teams, the Trek-Segafredo women's team, created in 2019, shares everything with its male counterpart: staff, equipment, and jerseys (as far as the Tour is concerned). And this is also true for the salary basis. Luca Guercilena's team has gone faster than the pace dictated by the UCI by raising the minimum salary of its female cyclists to that of the men from 2021 (40,000 euros per year), while this obligation should only come into effect in 2023.
An American-Italian structure financed by a bicycle brand and a coffee roaster, the women's version of Trek-Segafredo has quickly become a force. Fifth in the UCI rankings in its first season, it finished first the following season, in 2020, under the impetus of Elizabeth Deignan, Elisa Longo-Borghini and the current European champion Ellen Van Dijk. World champion Elisa Balsamo has bolstered the squad this year and has quickly confirmed her talent by winning six races, including the Trofeo Alfredo Binda and Gent-Wevelgem. The team's collective strength is impressive and is expected to contend more for stage victories than for the general classification in the Tour de France Femmes with Zwift, with the presence of French champion Audrey Cordon-Ragot.
