Lorena Wiebes will leave Team Parkhotel Valkenburg by mutual consent on Monday, June 1. The Dutch champion had previously attempted to leave the team during the off-season after drawing interest from top-tier squads Sunweb, CCC-Liv and Trek-Segafredo.

Wiebes turned professional with Parkhotel Valkenburg in 2018, signing a contract that would see her race with the team through 2021. Her attempts to extricate herself from that agreement last winter 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.
