Wiebes Extends Contract to 2028

Lorena Wiebes has extended her contract with Team SD Worx – Protime, committing to her team through 2028. “I didn’t hesitate for long. I feel completely at home in this team and I also feel that in this environment I can make the necessary steps in the coming years,” Wiebes said.

The 25-year-old Wiebes was already signed until the end of 2025 and was positively surprised when the team came with the proposal to extend the contract mid-term. “It is a big compliment for me that the team wants to work with me as far into the future as 2028. I was offered a nice contract, so we quickly reached an agreement.”

The Dutch cyclist is known as the best sprint star in the peloton, but is also getting better in the classics every year. This spring, in addition to stages in the UAE Tour Women, Wiebes also won the classics Miron Ronde van Drenthe, Gent-Wevelgem and Scheldeprijs, plus a second place in the Amstel Gold Race.

Wiebes added, “I have been racing for this team since 2023. I notice that I have made the necessary steps in this environment and thanks to the good guidance of the team. That I have become a lot stronger has shown last spring with the victory in Gent-Wevelgem as the highlight. The fact that the team has a lot of confidence in me also strengthens me.”

For Wiebes, it is also an important factor that world champion Lotte Kopecky has also extended her contract with Team SD Worx – Protime through 2028. “I get along well with Lotte. In the races we strengthen each other. How Lotte occasionally pulls the sprint for me is unprecedented. In the classics, I pull up to her. It’s a great prospect that we will still be together in a team for the next four years,” she said.

Sports manager Danny Stam, who has also extended his contract with Team SD Worx – Protime through 2028 to complete the treble signings, is delighted that Wiebes will remain on the team for the next four years. “Lorena is a real winner. As a sprint star she knows how to win the necessary races, but we also see that she is making huge strides in the classical work. She is eager to learn and get stronger. In addition, she fits well in the team. Often she is an atmosphere creator in the team.”

With such commitment, the team has a solid foundation going into the years ahead and all eyes will be on them to see what Wiebes and Kopecky can achieve with Stam’s guidance and the entire squad around them.
