Team Sunweb has announced the contract extensions until 2021 of three riders that are in the Tour de France roster: Cees Bol, Chad Haga and Michael Matthews.

The 23-year-old Bol has taken the victory in the Danilith Nokere Koerse in 2019 and stage wins in races like the Amgen Tour of California and the Tour of Norway. "I’ve had a dream start with the team," explained Bol. "To win three races in my first season as a neo-pro is great. I’m really looking forward to continuing my development and making the next steps in my career with the team and I feel like this is the right place for me. We will continue to fight for more great results in the future."

Haga joined the team -then known as Giant-Shimano- in 2014 and was instrumental in Tom Dumoulin's Giro d'Italia victory in 2017. The rider also had the chance of achieving one of his dreams by taking the win at the last stage of the 2019 Italian grand tour.

"My whole career has been about making steady progress and improvement, and Team Sunweb’s philosophy and culture line up with my own perfectly to make that happen," commented the American. "Every year has been better than the last, so I have every reason to stay. I have been a part of the team’s greatest successes and even had some of my own along the way, and I’m excited to see what we can do together in the next two years!"

Matthews made the move to Sunweb in 2017 and has taken stage victories in races like the Tour de France, the Vuelta al Pais Vasco and has won the Grand Prix Cycliste de Quebec and Montreal. "I’m really happy to be staying with Team Sunweb for another two years," he explained.

"I’ve already had an amazing two and a half years with the team, with lots of great memories. I think this is a good environment for me to develop and I can’t wait to make even more memories with our big family in Team Sunweb."
