Tom Dumoulin has announced that he will retire at the end of 2022. In a post on Instagram, the 2017 Giro d'Italia winner said that this year has been a "frustrating path", and that he has chosen to take a "new and unknown" route.

The Jumbo-Visma rider is out of contract at the end of the year, and so a decision on his future was required. There had been rumours that Team BikeExchange-Jayco would sign the Dutchman, but the 31-year-old has decided to leave the sport.
