Rohan Dennis, the two-time world time trial champion, says the 2023 season will be his last.

In a short message on social media, the Jumbo-Visma rider revealed that he will retire from professional racing.

“Cycling, you have given me a lot and I’ll be forever grateful. It is still a long season ahead however it will definitely be my last as a professional,” Dennis wrote.

Dennis is in the final year of his two-year contract with Jumbo-Visma, and did not give a reason why he’s decided to retire.

The 32-year-old Dennis holds the unique distinction of not only winning stages across all three grand tours but also holding the leader’s jersey in all three.

A prolific time trialist, the sometimes combative Dennis has won 32 races across his career.

An effort to evolve into a grand tour GC contender fell short, but he remains a factor in time trials and transitioned into a top helper.

Dennis won a stage at his 2023 season debut at the Santos Tour Down Under last month.
