While a gaggle of US-based pro riders have been able to return to Europe in the last week as travel restrictions are lifted that's not the case for US national road champion Ruth Winder.

The Trek-Segafredo rider, based in Boulder, Colorado, has no confirmed date for when she will return to Europe, and with the Women's WorldTour set to begin in less than a month there are huge levels of uncertainty for the 26-year-old and her short-term future.
