Reigning road race cycling Olympic champion Anna van der Breggen will retire from the sport after trying to defend her title in Tokyo next year.
The 30-year-old, who also won bronze in the time trial at Rio 2016, has decided to continue to race for one more year before taking up a coaching role as sporting director with her team Boels-Dolmans.
"I want to end my career with a great, full season," van der Breggen said in a statement.
”The Olympic Games in Tokyo are, of course, a great challenge and an important reason for continuing another year."
The 2018 world champion will be joined by fellow Dutch rider Chantal van den Broek-Blaak, who will retire in the spring of 2022.
The Olympic road race will be held in July 2021 after Tokyo 2020 was postponed for a year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Van der Breggen is one of the most successful riders of her generation.
She claimed the Giro Rosa twice and 12 one-day races, including five La Fleche Wallonne Feminine.
"I had gradually come to realise that I was looking for a new challenge in my life," the two-time Olympic medallist said.
"I look forward to helping our cyclists become even better. I hope I can provide more guidance in the areas of science, nutrition and mental support. I am certain we can improve in these areas.”
