Joss Lowden has said in an interview with VeloNews that she contemplated retiring at the end of this year, but an offer from new WorldTour team Uno-X Pro Cycling Team caused her to re-evaluate.

The British rider indicated that she considered focusing on other priorities in her life, such as starting a family, but a successful 2021 has put paid to that idea. Lowden set the women's Hour Record in September with a distance of 48.405km, two months after winning the Tour de Feminin.
