Team Jumbo Visma has announced the contract extension of Primoz Roglic for the next four years.

The team and the Slovenian have agreed to extend his contract until at least the end of 2023. Roglic, who currently leads the General Classification in the Vuelta a España and finished in the third position of the 2019 Giro d'Italia, claims to feel at home in the Dutch team -where he arrived in 2016.

"I like the way this team works," he commented. "I am enjoying being part of it. It's all about collaboration. Together we can achieve great goals. As a cyclist, I entered this team as a relative beginner and I have developed with the help of the team. I received opportunities and support. It all went quickly. For me, but also for the team. We have now reached a nice level together and I really believe that we can achieve even more. I have won some races in recent years, but you always aim for more and for the highest.

"We are still improving and our best has not yet been reached. The team and I have brought each other to a higher level and that really gives me a feeling of connection. We want to get the best out of me, but also out of the team. Only then will we see how far we can really get. We insist on growth and development. We will continue to invest energy in this, even if it is a process of years."

The 29-year-old didn't hesitate when he was offered a contract extension. "No. Why?" he explained. "I am happy with the role I have. The most important argument for staying is that I get opportunities here. I like to win. I have that option within this team. So I didn't have to think about it for long. I feel at home here, so why not? I hope to bring motivation and inspiration within the team so that we can continue to fight together to be the best."
