The Canyon-SRAM team announced today that it will part ways at the end of the year with Pauline Ferrand-Prévot, the six-time world champion across three disciplines who has been with the German squad for the past four seasons. Ferrand-Prévot said she would confirm her new team in the coming weeks.

A team press release did not say what prompted the change, but referenced the Frenchwoman would move “closer to the centre of her life, her family. It’s a move we understand, and yet it’s one we know will leave a gap in our Canyon family.”
