Sarah Düster (born July 10, 1982 in Wangen im Allgäu ) is a former German cyclist .

Sarah Düster started cycling in 1994 and won her first races in the schoolgirls class. In 1998 she became German vice-champion of junior women in road races , after having finished third the year before and having won several podium places at the German track championships. In 2000 she became German junior time trial champion and was eighth in the road race at the Junior World Championships. In 2002 she won the ranking of the best young rider at the International Tour of Thuringia , and in 2003 she won the overall ranking in the cycling league. From 2002 to 2006 she trained as a teacher and competed in cycling at the same time.

In 2006, Düster became overall World Cup winner together with her then Univega team and the following year with the Raleigh team . In 2008 and 2009 she won the team time trial of the Open de Suède Vårgårda together with her respective team and in 2009 she won the overall World Cup with the Cervélo-Lifeforce Cycling Team .

Sarah Düsters' non-participation in the 2009 UCI Road World Championships caused a particular stir : although she was on site in Mendrisio , she could not start because the Association of German Cyclists had failed to register her for the race. The following year she could not start at the World Cup in Melbourne due to an injury . In 2011 she drove for the Dutch team Nederland Bloeit ; in September finished 56th in the individual road race at the UCI Road World Championships 2011 in Copenhagen .

At the beginning of 2013, Sarah Düster announced her retirement from active cycling.
