Moreno Hofland (born 31 August 1991) is a Dutch former professional road bicycle racer, who rode professionally between 2010 and 2021 for the Rabobank Continental Team, LottoNL–Jumbo, Lotto–Soudal and EF Education–Nippo teams.[3]


In 2014 he took a stage win in Paris–Nice.[3] In May 2015, Hofland gave his LottoNL–Jumbo team its first victory of the season by winning a bunch sprint on the second stage of the Tour de Yorkshire, taking off some pressure on the organization by media outlets.[4] That season he also won a stage of the Ster ZLM Toer. He then joined Lotto–Soudal in 2017, staying with the team for two seasons and winning the Famenne Ardenne Classic in his first season with the Belgian squad. Hofland then joined EF Education First in 2019.[5] After only starting three races in 2021, he announced his retirement from competition in September of that year, disclosing that he had been suffering from intestinal ischemia, which had disrupted his ability to train and race.[3]
