Lorena Wiebes has joined Team Sunweb after leaving Team Parkhotel Valkenburg by mutual consent, signing a four-year contract with the team until the end of 2024.

The 21-year-old Dutch national champion turned professional with Parkhotel Valkenburg in 2018, signing a contract that lasted until 2021. Her attempts to extricate herself from that agreement and so race with a WorldTour team saw Parkhotel Valkenburg launch legal proceedings against her.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
