UCI Women's WorldTeam

Team SD Worx-Protime

nl flag

This Dutch team are the dominant force in women's cycling, topping the year-end WorldTour rankings in seven of the past eight seasons. They are home to the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift champion, Demi Vollering, along with the world road race champion, Lotte Kopecky.

The team started life as a small domestic squad in 2010 under the name Dolmans Landscaping Team. In 2011 they were granted a UCI licence and from there they blossomed, acquiring a new title sponsor in Boels Rental in 2012, and soon growing into one of the very best teams in the sport.

Over the years they’ve been home to the likes of Lizzie Deignan, Anna van der Breggen and Megan Guarnier, and established themselves as the super-team of the women’s peloton, usually the ones to beat in both stage races and one-day Classics. In 2021, SD Worx took over as the team’s title sponsor, but the same healthy budget and star-studded line-up continued from the Boels-Dolmans days.

After Anna van der Breggen’s retirement, Vollering stepped into her role as GC leader, whilst the arrival of Kopecky only strengthened their already rock-solid Classics team. Lorena Wiebes arrived in 2023 to provide victories in the bunch sprints, while the versatile European time trial champion Marlen Reusser has developed to add a threat across the board.

They have a strong stable of domestiques and a handful of up-and-coming talents, such as Niamh Fisher-Black, Anna Shackley, and Blanka Vas.
