On Friday, he wrote on social mediaexternal-link that he planned to take “a new and unknown path”.

Dumoulin, who also claimed two time trial Olympic silver medals and finished second in the 2018 Tour de France, added that he had endured “fatigue, aches and injuries”.

“For a while now there has been a disbalance between my 100% dedication, everything I do and sacrifice for my sport and what I subsequently get out of it in return,” he said.

“With a lot of patience and a very cautious [training] approach, I’m convinced that I could get back to my full potential on the bike.

“But that would be a long and patient road with no guarantee of success. I choose not to take that road, but to quit my active cycling instead and to take a new and unknown path.”

Dumoulin currently races for Team Jumbo-Visma.
