Trek-Segafredo has officially confirmed the signing of German rider John Degenkolb, who agreed to a three-year deal, and his Giant-Alpecin teammate Koen de Kort who signed a contract for two years.

"I'm incredibly excited about this transfer. It's a big step for me to get such a great opportunity in a team like Trek-Segafredo, with such a strong Classics inspiration. It's a dream come true," said Degenkolb.

"My previous team was very committed to my ambitions in the Classics as well, but coming to Trek-Segafredo feels like the next big step for me. This team is one of the few really big teams in races like the Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix, and this was a big motivation for me to join," he added.

The 27-year-old has an impressive palmares in classics with victories that include Paris-Roubaix and Milan-San Remo as well as stage wins in the Giro d'Italia, the Vuelta a España and Paris-Nice.

Dutchman Koen de Kort shares the enthusiasm of his teammate: "I am hugely excited! Trek-Segafredo is a big, strong team with a beautiful image and a number of really strong riders. I like the way this team races, in particular at the Classics when Fabian Cancellara was the team leader."
