Anna ver der Breggen has already announced she will retire after the 2021 season, but even after a hugely successful career she is still hungry for more.

She finally won the world time trial title in Imola after finishing second four times, adding the time trial rainbow jersey to go with her 2016 Olympic gold medal, her 2018 road race world title, three Giro Rosa titles and close to 50 other victories. There is little left in women's cycling for her to win, but she still finds new goals as she enjoys the final chapter of her career.
