German WorldTour formation Team Sunweb has announced the signing of young Dutch rider Martijn Tusveld.

The 23-year-old will make the move from Roompot-Nederlandse Loterij which he joined at the start of this season, after having been a stagiaire at Sunweb - then known at Giant-Alpecin - in 2016.

"I got to know the team last year and my first experiences were really good," Tusveld said. "I immediately had a good feeling about the team and how they work and I'm pleased to be able to take the next step with my career and ride on a WorldTour level from next year.

"I am thankful to Team Roompot for their good support this season, because of that I was able to make the next step in my development."

Sunweb coach Marc Reef believes that Tusveld can become a valuable all-rounder for the team.

"We recognised Martijn's potential during last year throughout his traineeship with the team. We can see that he has already taken some steps forward uphill and in time trials, even on a WorldTour level," he said.

"He is a really good all-rounder with these strengths and he is also able to bring value to the team in the classics and the sprint train. We aim to increase his engine and continue his development whilst doing races across all terrain at the highest level with the team."

Tusveld and Sunweb have agreed a contract for two years.
