After insisting she would not ride for the team again, Lorena Wiebes will ride for Parkhotel-Valkenburg in the coming season. After a stellar 2019 the 20-year-old had hoped to leave the Dutch team, but with a contract valid until the end of 2021, the team objected.

However, with the case set for court earlier this month, an 11th hour compromise has been found which will see the prolific sprinter stay with the team at least until June 1.
