Ryan Mullen and Alex Frame sign with Trek-Segafredo

Trek-Segafredo has signed Ryan Mullena and Alex Frame. The riders will stay at the American team until the 2019 season.

The current Irish National Champion will join the team from Cannondale-Drapac, and is excited about this new adventure. "I'm so excited to be joining Trek-Segafredo," he said.

"Since my initial conversation with them in the summer, we shared similar ideas and ambitions for the future. I am really excited to continue my development at Trek-Segafredo and am confident it will be a successful combination over the coming seasons."

Frame makes a move from Continental team JLT Condor and seems ready to join the WorldTour. "Joining Trek-Segafredo is a massive deal for me, I cannot wait to put on the jersey," he commented.

"I know I can be competitive at this level. I want to start 2018 well and prove what I am capable of. This is the perfect team for me, I'm looking forward to a great year next year; I could not be happier."

Trek-Segafredo's General Manager Luca Guercilena is happy to have these two riders in the team. "Ryan (Mullen) and Alex (Frame) are both young and very talented, and with them we want to continue investing in the development of young riders," he affirmed. "They are both very strong guys and we are convinced they will be valuable assets for the team.

"Mullen will reinforce our time trial squad and Frame, with his experience from the track, is obviously a very fast rider who will be of great help in the lead-out and as we hope, also in the Classics. We strongly believe that they still have a large margin for improvement. I am confident that they will be a solid option for the future."
