Fabio Felline has extended his contract with Trek-Segafredo until the end of 2019. The rider has been at the team since 2014.

After a difficult year, the Italian is happy that the team has confidence in him. "I am extremely happy about this extension," he commented. "I signed for one more year and for me it’s very important that the team wants to prolong our relationship and keeps believing in me. Experiencing this confidence and knowing that the team believes in me was crucial for my decision.

"After the really bad year I had, the things that are important are the basic things: the confidence, the amazing group of riders and staff, and the Trek-Segafredo family. Speaking with Luca (Guercilena, General Manager), I completely understand the position of the team and we came to an agreement fairly easily. I am grateful for the team’s confidence and I will give it my all to prove them right for their trust. I am truly very, very happy."

Guercilena thinks the rider will come back soon enough to be his old self. "Fabio has always been a hard-working professional, and we trust he can return at his best level," the General Manager explained. "It’s true that in the past year, due to some physical issues he has not been able to obtain the results we were expecting, but we are confident that it’s just a matter of time before the old Fabio is back.

"Fabio has been with the team since the very beginning and we still believe in his capacities, so even though he didn’t perform at his best in the last year, we wanted to give him an extra chance and keep him on board for the 2019 season."
