Marlen Reusser made new strides in 2023 and developed into a classics rider. She won Gent-Wevelgem in inclement conditions and prevailed in her home race Tour de Suisse, where she won the final classification. She also won the Spanish stage race Itzulia. "Before the season started, I had made it a goal to get better especially in classical and multi-day work. I didn't want to be seen only as a time trialist. Last year I changed a lot in terms of my profile. I showed that I ride quite well uphill. In theory, I could start focusing on the spring classics or riding overall. It's up to me and Team SD Worx-Protime to figure out which plan is most likely to succeed. The obvious choice is stage races that include an individual time trial. It's an interesting and beautiful project."

Sports manager, Danny Stam, is pleased with the evolution of the 32-year-old Swiss. "How she has developed in the last two years is impressive. When Marlen signed with us, the outside world had questions about it. But Marlen has proved them wrong. She has developed from a pure time trialist to a super danger in all the tougher races. From the way she rides uphill, you can see what a amazing development she has gone through. We are super happy with that."

Reusser: "I just enjoy discovering what is possible. The idea that as an athlete you can make yourself faster or better is something that really appeals to me. In 2024 my most important goals will be the individual time trails at the world championships & at the Olympic games. I would also like to improve my GC riding this year. Of course I don’t have a final schedule yet, but it would be nice to have a good series of races in Spain. And of course I would also like to defend my overall victory in Tour de Suisse."
