SD Worx, Uno-X opt not to replace riders on maternity leave despite new rules

Chantal van den Broek-Blaak (SD Worx) and Joscelin Lowden (Uno X Pro Cycling) have announced their respective pregnancies in January and will take maternity leave from racing in 2023 but their teams won’t replace them despite new rules allowing it.

The UCI introduced a new maternity clause this year that would allow trade teams to hire replacement riders to cover riders’ spots on the team while on maternity leave. However, both teams have told cycling news that they have tentatively decided not to bring in new riders.
