Trek-Segafredo has confirmed the signing of Toms Skujinš. The Latvian joins the American squad for two seasons.

The rider, who won several stages at the Amgen Tour of California and the Settimana Internazionale Coppi e Bartali, makes the move from Cannondale-Drapac. "I am thrilled to join Trek-Segafredo because it’s such a great team," said the rider. "Right after my first conversations with Luca (Guercilena, General Manager) and the team's directors, I immediately felt this would be the right team for me.

"It’s great to hear what the plans are for the team as a whole and I will do my very best to be a part of that. It's just like I have been doing in the previous years: making the races exciting, and who knows? Springing a surprise here and there."

Guercilena believes the Latvian will fit very well in the team. "We have been following Skujinš for a while now because we like the way he races – he is not afraid to dig deep and race hard," he explained.

"Toms is a very ambitious guy and I am pretty confident that with that attitude, on top of his talents as a rider, he can get quite far. He is a very complete rider and a strong all-rounder who can help the team in various circumstances. Toms will be a great asset to our team."
