Wiggle High5 welcomes Kim Palmer as Assistant Directeur Sportif

Wiggle High5 Pro Cycling is delighted to announce that Kim Palmer has joined the team as Assistant Directeur Sportif with immediate effect. The former multi-sport athlete from Queensland’s first race in charge will be the three-day Tour of Chongming Island, China, which starts on the 26th of April.

“I am thoroughly excited to join the Wiggle High5 team in the capacity of Assistant DS and can’t wait to meet the girls and get into the racing,” Palmer said. “This role is something that I’ve personally been building towards for many years and I’d like to thank Rochelle Gilmore for giving me such a tremendous opportunity. 

“Having a team with so many talented athletes lends itself to many opportunities and gives us lots of options on race day,” she added. “Of course, all the riders are unique individuals, so part of my role will be to understand how everyone operates and the way they go about their business. I hope to be able to help bring out the best in each of them as they all play a crucial part to the team’s results.”

As a multitalented athlete, Palmer represented Australia in both road cycling and mountain biking, as well as completing Iron Man Hawaii. As a Directeur Sportif she managed the High5 Dream Team through two seasons, and the Australian National Team on several occasions.

Most recently Palmer directed the Australian team at the Commonwealth Games, in Gold Coast, Queensland, which delivered victories for Katrin Garfoot and former Wiggle High5 Pro Cycling athlete Chloe Hosking. Palmer relishes the challenge presented by joining one of the biggest professional teams in the World.

“The Wiggle High5 team is well known for being one of the most professional teams in the women’s peloton and over the years has achieved numerous successes,” she said. “My aim is to continue to achieve the best possible outcome for the team by promoting a supportive team culture, clear objectives and maintain positive, clear communication.”
