Trek-Segafredo has announced the contract extension of Toms Skujins until at least the end of 2020.

Next year, the rider will start his third year in the American formation and he is happy to stay. "From day one Trek Segafredo staff and riders have been amazing in welcoming me, so it is a huge pleasure to stay with the team at least till the end of 2020," said the Latvian.

"My first Tour de France was on this team, my first national titles in both road race and individual time trial have been on this team and I got to ride the Team Time Trial World Championships (where Trek-Segafredo finished 7th) in Innsbruck with these guys so there are a lot of very good memories and it's all thanks to the trust the team has put in me."

Skujins is also pleased about the signing of his fellow countryman Emils Liepins, who makes the move from Wallonie-Bruxelles. "There are still some good races I'm looking forward to this year, and I know we will put on some good racing for the fans," said Skujins.

"Of course, next year is already on my mind a little too and who knows, maybe it's time to go see what the fuss is about at the Giro. However, one way or another it will be a fun 2020 because not only I will be riding for Trek Segafredo yet again, but there will be a human on the team I can speak Latvian with, so I don't get so homesick."

Liepins looks forward to starting his new adventure in Trek-Segafredo." Toms is right, it will be cool to be with another Latvian on the team and be able to speak our language," explained the rider.

"But, more importantly, I am very excited to join one of the best teams in the world! Trek-Segafredo in his current and previous versions was my favorite team when I was a child, and I can barely believe I will be part of this team next year, and I feel very honored about it. I look forward to show my best qualities on the road and will give it my all!"
