Lorena Wiebes emerged as one of the fastest women in professional cycling while racing with the team Parkhotel Valkenburg team in 2018. A European champion as a junior, the Dutch rider excelled in her first season in the elites that year, winning a stage of the BeNe Ladies Tour and the points classification.

In 2019, Wiebes opened her season with a victory in the Nokere Koerse, then landed on the podium of Brugge-De Panne and Gent-Wevelgem before winning all three stages and the overall of the Tour of Chongming Island, her first WorldTour win. She won the European Games road race in 2019 then beat Marianne Vos to win the Dutch national championships road race.

After 22 wins in the season, Wiebes began looking for a way out of her contract with the lower-level team that ended up going to the courts. Wiebes and the team finally came to an agreement to keep her through 31 May 2020, at which time she was free to leave. She won the Omloop van het Hageland before racing stopped due to the coronavirus pandemic. On 1 June, she signed with Team Sunweb.

Wiebes was the winningest woman in both 2021 and 2022, amassing 13 wins and 23 victories, respectively, including taking the first stage win of the inaugural Tour de France Femmes and becoming the first woman in history to wear a maillot jaune.
