The Astana Women's team is undergoing a transformation in 2021, with the Kazakhstani backing ending and a new investment from Mexico to give the team a "Latin soul". 

The team will merge with the A.R Efideporte mountain bike team run by Alejandro and Luis Rodríguez, with title sponsorship also coming from the financial company Monex. It will be known as A.R. Monex Women's Pro Cycling Team.
