After one year of existence in the Women's WordTour, Experza-Footlogix will cease to exist as a road team at the beginning of 2019 and will focus in cyclocross.

The team was set up by Christel Herremans as the successor of Sport Vlaanderen-Guill D'or and because of financial problems has had to pull the plug on the road cycling. "One of the sponsors wants to terminate the contract of three years after one year, at a time that I wanted to go one step higher on the road," commented Herremans in a press release.

"It is a tough decision, but if financially you can't keep playing at the top, then it becomes a difficult story. If you don't have top riders at the top of the UCI ranking, you don't get a lot of attention and sponsors get dissatisfied."

Experza-Footlogix will continue as a cyclocross team. "For the sake of clarity, I am not saying that the team will stop," the press release continues. "We will still be competing with our crossers but with a completely different focus.

"Our current riders have been informed about this a while ago and I am especially pleased that some of them have already found a team for the new season, which is not so easy after the finish of several teams."
