Three-time Olympian Tanya Dubnicoff has split from Cycling Canada, the organization announced Thursday.

Dubnicoff, the Canadian cycling team's women's pursuit coach, will stop working with the riders at the end of this month.

"I've had a long successful relationship with Cycling Canada in one form or another for over a decade," Dubnicoff said in a press release. "This decision came as a mutual one at the end of a long road culminating at this year's world championships in Minsk, Belarus."

With Dubnicoff, a former world champion on the track, at the helm, the Canadian women won a bronze medal at the 2012 Olympics in London. She also helped cerntralize the program at the indoor facility in Los Angeles.

"As we look at slight coaching structure changes to adapt to this new reality that will ensure continued momentum that Tanya has created, we celebrate Tanya's past successes and wish her all the best in her future endeavors," Canadian cycling coach Jacques Landry said.
