Deceuninck-Quick-Step has announced the contract extension of Kasper Asgreen. The Danish rider will remain at the team at least until the end of 2021.

Asgreen had a successful first season in the WorldTour level by being part in some of the strong rosters that tackled the classics, the Vuelta a España and the World Team Time Trial Championships, where he became the third neo-pro to win Gold in this discipline.

"I am really happy to announce that I have signed an extension of my contract with Deceuninck – Quick-Step and that I will be riding with the team until the end of the 2021 season," said the Dane speaking in a video from the team's training camp in Calpe, Spain. "I am really excited about it! Patrick gave me this opportunity and I didn't take very long to consider it – it was a no-brainer for me!"

"It is quite a long contract now and I have three years to learn and develop. We have some very good riders, who are proven winners and I am looking forward to learning from those guys and enjoying many more beautiful moments, such as last year's Worlds TTT in Innsbruck, which was the highlight of my neo-pro season."

Deceuninck-Quick-Step's Patrick Lefevere is satisfied with this contract extension. "Kasper has proven his class from the very beginning, playing an important role in many of our victories in what ended up as being a record-breaking 2018 season," he commented.

"He has a lot of potential and plenty of room for improvement, and these are just some of the reasons that give us satisfaction for having retained his services."
