The 21-year-old Norwegian already has several years of racing and experience under her belt, chalking up multiple Elite victories and podium finishes on the world stage. Growing up just 3 hours from the iconic Hafjell bikepark, Mille began riding Downhill at 11 years old, and less than a year later scored her first National title. Ten years later, Mille has built incredible strength and talent on the bike to become one of the fastest riders in the women’s field.

Mille has shown huge potential in recent seasons so it’s super exciting to welcome her onto the program. We're looking forward to working with her to unlock even more speed than she already has, helping her to target podium places in the upcoming season. Team mentor Fabien Barel is stoked to have Mille on board. 

The Canyon CLLCTV DH Team has witnessed some phenomenal results since its inception in 2017, including podium finishes for Luca Shaw, and multiple World Cup wins and podiums for Troy Brosnan. With the addition to Mille to the squad, the team looks set to continue contesting for the top spots throughout this year’s UCI Downhill World Cup Series.

I am super excited to be joining the CLLCTV. They are one of the best and most professional teams out here in my opinion and it’s an honour to be part of it. For me personally I think it’s the perfect timing to be joining their program. I never been more motivated or wanted it more. Working with the team, people and riders will be super good experience and I’m going to learn a lot. I’ve always been a fan of the Canyon brand and their bikes. Already after just a few weeks I feel so at home on the Sender. I'm super excited to see what we can do in 2023!  said Mille ahead of the 2023 season.
