Kathrin Hammes began her professional career with EF Education First-TIBCO-SVB, racing for the American squad from 2015-2017. After four seasons with various teams she calls her second go-round with the team a return to her roots. This time, she brings with her a wealth of European race experience and a love for long climbs.

She started riding thanks to a family friend. Riding soon led to racing and racing led to a stage win at Tour Cycliste Féminin International de l’Ardèche while competing on a composite team. This win, which happened shortly after Kathrin submitted her master’s degree thesis in sociology, was the catalyst for signing with the team.

The German favors her home roads in and around Freiburg for training, climbing and racing. While many of her teammates prefer the warmer climates of Spain and the south of France as their in-season residence, Kathrin remains in Germany throughout the season. Her favorite races are the Ardennes Classics and tough stage races like the Giro d’Italia Donne.
