European road race champion Annemiek van Vleuten will race her final event for Mitchelton-Scott at the three-day Madrid Challenge by La Vuelta, which starts in Toledo, Spain, on Friday. The 38-year-old has spent the past five seasons with the Australian team, but will move on to Movistar in 2021.

"I'm looking forward to finishing off this season with the team on a high," Van Vleuten said on Mitchelton-Scott's website on Wednesday. "That will be not achieved just by the result, but more through working together as a team and following a plan together. I want to finish off my five years with the team on a high, with a lot of teamwork."
