The UCI announced Wednesday that SD Worx (formerly Boels Dolmans) has been awarded with a Women's WorldTour licence from 2021 to 2023. The powerful Dutch team, which is home to double world champion Anna van der Breggen, joins eight other top-tier WorldTeams in 2021.

Boels Dolmans applied for a WorldTour licence last year but were denied the status due to the financial aspects of their application. At that time, sponsors Boels Rental and Dolmans Landscaping had not renewed their contracts and the team were in search of a new title sponsor. The team later signed a four-year deal with SD Worx.
