LottoNL-Jumbo has extended the contract with Robert Gesink for three years. The team sees in the Dutchman, a key rider of the next seasons in diverse kind of roles.

Gesink has been in the team since 2007 when it was known as Rabobank. "His palmares proves what an excellent rider he is," said team manager Richard Plugge. "During the current Tour de France he shows that once again. It’s obvious that we would like to keep such a rider for a longer period.

"He is developing more and more as a team player who assists the youngsters as a road captain, but also the team leaders. He is too good to play a supporting role only. He will also get opportunities to go for his own success."

The rider is also pleased with the news of the contract extension. "It is nice that I can do this for another few years," Gesink commented. "I’m ready for this new role. I don’t need to change teams for such an impulse. With Team LottoNL-Jumbo, I have been on a journey as a family for years. We are a group of comrades

"If you look at the riders, the sponsors and the available knowledge, we have everything we need to become one of the leading teams. I am happy to be able to contribute my experience and thus be able to fulfil a certain role. I have to grow into this role, but I certainly like it."
