Team SD Worx
Demi Vollering was born on November 15, 1996, in Pijnacker, Netherlands.
Vollering began bike racing in 2015 and rose to success in professional cycling with the Dutch development team Parkhotel Valkenburg in 2019 and 2020. During her first two years on the European circuit with Parkhotel Valkenburg, Vollering finished 3rd at Liège-Bastogne-Liège, 5th at Flèche Wallonne, and 7th at Amstel Gold Race before other top performances such as 2nd overall at Festival Elsy Jacobs, 5th overall at The Women's Tour, 13th overall at the Giro d'Italia Donne and 5th at GP de Plouay. She opened the 2020 season with a 3rd overall at Setmana Ciclista Valenciana before the season was shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but returned to the late-season calendar with 3rd at La Course by le Tour de France and Flèche Wallonne and 7th places at Gent-Wevelgem and Tour of Flanders.
These performances secured her a contract with SD Worx in 2021, where she will race through the end of 2024. Flourishing on the Women's WorldTour, Vollering has developed into one of the most versatile riders in the world, excelling in time trials, hilly one-day races and in the mountains.
She has gone on to win the Women's Tour and Itzulia Women while finishing 2nd overall at the Tour de France Femmes and 3rd overall at the Giro d'Italia Donne, along with other highlights that include wins at La Course by le Tour de France and Liège-Bastogne-Liège.
