Markel Irizar and Koen de Kort have extended their contracts with TrekS-Segafredo. The riders will stay at the American formation at least until 2019 and 2020, respectively.

The two riders are some of the most experienced riders in the team and the peloton. Irizar is 38 years old and de Kort is 35, and have been 16 and 15 years in the professional peloton.

"Right from the start, when I joined Trek-Segafredo in 2017, I felt really comfortable and at home in this team," said de Kort. "I feel extremely well supported here, everybody gives it their all to let the riders perform at their maximum.

"At Trek-Segafredo I have found a very motivating and stimulating environment where I can do what I can do best. I was very pleased that the team felt the same way about me, so we came to very easily and quickly to an agreement for two more years, that was really nice."

Irizar is also happy with the news of his contract extension. "I am thrilled to have the opportunity to stay with the team for one more year," he commented. "The 2019 season will be the 10th season in this team and on Trek Bikes so I can say that this is 'my team.'

"I would like to thank the sponsors and the management of the team for the confidence that they have had over these years. I feel the young guns are pushing really hard and I am super motivated to share my experience with them and to support them as much as I can our young guys and try to help them with our experience."
