In the latest chapter of her glittering career, Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar) has won the individual standings for the 2021 Women’s WorldTour series, and finished atop the UCI World Rankings. 

Although she was unable to compete in the last Women’s WorldTour race of the season, the Ronde van Drenthe, due to a broken shoulder and pelvis sustained at Paris-Roubaix Femmes, van Vleuten had already established an unassailable lead. She finishes the season 600 points ahead of her younger compatriot, Demi Vollering (SD Worx), with a total of 3,177 points.
