Team DSM has announced the departure of Marc Hirschi after reaching a settlement.

The team has confirmed that it has reached a settlement with the Swiss rider, who finished in the third position of the 2020 World Championships and took the victory of the Fleche Wallonne just days after, to terminate his contract that originally ended on December 31, 2021.

"It has been agreed that the agreement will be terminated with immediate effect and that no further comments will be made," said the team through a statement.

The difficult 2020 season was a breakthrough for Hirschi as he took the victory not only of the Belgian race but also of one stage of the Tour de France. The Swiss also finished in the second place of Liege-Bastogne-Liege, making it a year to remember.

It is still unknown the team in which the 22-year-old rider will continue his promising career. "Team DSM wishes Marc Hirschi all the best for the continuation of his career and expresses its gratitude for what Marc Hirschi has contributed to the team," concluded the statement from his former formation.
