Roy Curvers and Chad Haga have renewed their contracts with Team Sunweb. Curvers will stay for one more season before joining the team's coaching staff and Haga remains at the team until the end of 2019.

The Dutchman joined the team in 2008 and has evolved into the road captain role, being part of the team's success. "This team has grown into one of the best in the world and all of the leaps that we have made as a team have challenged me to develop as a rider and keep me motivated," he said. "After being with the team for 10 years, it feels like family to me so I never considered the possibility of leaving as an option.

"A rider of my age has to start thinking about his future after cycling, and I'm happy that the team has the trust in me and has given me the opportunity to continue to develop after my career on the bike is over. This security gives me peace of mind and makes it easy to fully focus on cycling and to continue to be an important part of the team out on the road during the last part of my career."

29-year-old Haga arrived to the team in 2014 and has helped the squad take four stage victories in the Vuelta a España and five in the Giro d'Italia, and he was part of the roster that supported Tom Dumoulin in his win at the Italian Grand Tour. "I'm really happy to extend with the team. After being with the team for four years I feel really comfortable with my role here and am continuously challenged," the American commented.

"I'm really happy supporting our GC guys like Tom and Wilco and hope to continue to build on the successes that we have achieved together. This season was the best year so far and I hope that our progression as a team will continue in the coming years. I look forward to seeing what the future holds and how we continue to succeed together."
