LottoNL-Jumbo has announced the signing of Laurens De Plus. The Belgian rider has reached an agreement with the team for the next two seasons.

De Plus became professional in Quick-Step Floors in 2016 and he wants a new challenge in his career. "I think this is an ideal team for me," he commented. "Team LottoNL-Jumbo has proven to work well with young riders and to be able to develop them further.

"Seeing how the team rode in the Tour motivated me. This is a unique opportunity for me to develop further and hopefully to be able to perform well later on in grand tours. The good atmosphere at Team LottoNL-Jumbo is also very important to me."

LottoNL-Jumbo's sports director Merijn Zeeman thinks the ambitions of the rider fit well with those of the team. "Thanks to Jumbo’s long-term commitment, we are able to look to the long term," he said.

"We would like to have the greatest talents in our team and therefore we scout intensively in the age category 22 to 25 years. That is the new generation of leaders. We will gradually guide guys like Laurens in this process: from support for our current leaders to opportunities to take the lead themselves."
