Anna van der Breggen is about to embark on her final season as a professional cyclist in what will be a celebration of a sparkling decade-long career that has seen her become one of the most accomplished athletes in the sport. 

She will close out her career with SD Worx while at the height of her game, wearing double rainbow jerseys after her historic feat of winning both the time trial and the road race at the 2020 World Championships in Imola.
