Jumbo-Visma are the latest WorldTour organisation to branch out with a top-level women's team, joining Trek-Segafredo, Team DSM, Team BikeExchange, Movistar Team, and Lotto Soudal, and to a lesser extent FDJ, with Cofidis set to follow suit in 2022. Although UCI regulations kept them from joining the Women's WorldTour, the presence of Marianne Vos at the head of the squad will all but guarantee the yellow and black-clad team will be in all of the top events.

The team has been in the works for a year, with men's manager Richard Plugge hinting last January that the potential demise of the Boels-Dolmans team and the release of several top riders including Anna van der Breggen helped solidify the idea.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
