Dutchman Moreno Hofland has decided to retire after being unable to control gastrointestinal issues that have hampered his ability to train and race. The 30-year-old signed with EF Education-Nippo in 2019 and remained with the team this year after they extended the contracts of most riders because the COVID-19 pandemic deprived the team of many racing opportunities.

Hofland started three races - Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne in February and GP de Wallonie this month - but did not finish any of them.
