Demi Vollering Still Quiet on Future After Departure from Team SD Worx-Protime

It’s been confirmed for some time now that Demi Vollering will be leaving Team SD Worx-Protime at the end of the season. While team manager Danny Stam and team manager Erwin Janssen have commented on the news, Vollering herself has yet to explain her decision.

The statement released by the management of SD Worx-Protime on the day of Dwars door Vlaanderen raised eyebrows. “We made Demi a generous offer and indicated that she could respond by a certain date. Vollering’s management did not respond. Therefore, we assume that Vollering will leave the team at the end of the year,” the team stated.

Vollering could provide her own perspective on the matter, but after Dwars door Vlaanderen and the Tour of Flanders, she avoided the mixed zone where journalists were waiting. She did speak with the press after the Brabantse Pijl. However, when asked about her take on the situation, she responded evasively. “I have nothing to say about that statement. I just want to focus on the sport.”

“Why don’t I want to say anything? It’s very simple. I’m still fully focused on this season; I’m riding for SD Worx-Protime this season. You can ask me a lot about it, but officially I can’t say anything until August 1st. You won’t hear anything from me before then.”
