CCC Team has announced the contract extension of Nathan Van Hooydonck. The Belgian rider will remain at the team until at least 2021.

Van Hooydonck has added an additional year to his existing contract, which was set to conclude at the end of the 2020 season. The 23-year-old joined the team through the BMC Development Team program in 2015 and stepped up to the WorldTour level in the middle of the 2017 season, from where he has played an integral role in CCC Team's Classics team.

"Nathan's growth and development from the BMC Development Team days to where he is now has led us to believe he is a rider with big talent and a great future ahead of him," said the team's General Manager Jim Ochowicz. "He has consistently proved himself as a valuable domestique to Greg Van Avermaet during the Classics and is more than capable of going for his own result in these races.

"We are looking forward to helping Nathan develop further as a rider and we are excited to see what he can do. Nathan has been with the team for a while now so it's easy to forget how young he is. At just 23-years-old, Nathan has a long and bright career ahead of him and we believe CCC Team is a great fit for a rider of his calibre."

The rider is looking forward to staying in the team for the next couple of years. "When Jim Ochowicz called me after Paris-Roubaix to tell me that the team wanted to extend my contract and asked me if I wanted to stay, I was really happy and it was an easy decision to make. I feel appreciated in the team for the work I do and with this contract extension, the team must see some potential in me which is a huge confidence boost.

"The main reason to stay with CCC Team is that it feels like home and the riders around me in the Classics group are so experienced, so I am in a great position to learn from them. This season, I already felt that I made a good step forward and in the next seasons I want to continue that and be with Greg Van Avermaet in the finals of the Classics. I would also like to go for my own result in the smaller races, that is my ambition and I hope in a few years, I can be a leader in the bigger races too."
