Date of Birth: 18/10/1987
Place of Birth: Genoves, Valencia, Spain
Anna Sanchis was born on the 18th October 1987 in Genoves, Valencia, Spain. Daughter of former professional José Salvador Sanchis, Anna began her career in 2007, finishing seventh in her debut at the Giro Donne the following year. In 2009 she rode for the Italian Safi-Pasta Zara team before returning to Spain to ride for the Bizkaia-Durango team. She rode for Bizkaia-Durango for four years before switching to the Wiggle High5 team in 2014.
Sanchis, who is in her final year of her medicine studies to become a Doctor, is from the Communidad Valenciana region of western Spain and is a multiple Spanish Time Trial (2012, 2013, 2015, 2016) and road champion (2012. 2015).
The past two season’s Anna didn’t race much due to her study and her allergies kept her sidelined for a while. Unfortunately the bad luck returned in 2015 when she fractured her collarbone in the Giro Rosa just one week after winning the Spanish National Championships. The fractured collarbone kept her sidelined again for the majority of the 2015 season but she managed to return in competition in the La Madrid Challenge and represented Spain at the World Championships in Richmond, USA.
The past season Sanchis won her 6th national title, her 4th Time Trial title in Spain. However despite being one of Spain’s best female cyclists she didn’t get selected for the Olympic Games. However Sanchis ended the year on a positive note as she married her best friend in the end of September 2016.
Anna is an excellent all-rounder, capable of achieving results on a large variety of terrain. Her all-round ability to climb and time trial will make her a valuable asset to the team in stage races and hilly one-day races.
2012, 2013, 2015, 2016 ITT National Champion
2012, 2015 Road National Champion
