Trek-Segafredo has announced the signing of Kenny Elissonde with a two-year deal that starts in January of 2020.

The rider has been part of the team currently known as Ineos since 2017 and he was set to start in the 2019 Vuelta a España, but he was taken out of the selection at the last moment and replaced by David de la Cruz. The Frenchman has a palmares that includes stage victories in the Vuelta a España and Paris-Correze, and top-five overall places in races like the Route du Sud and the Herald Sun Tour.

"I am obviously very happy to join Trek-Segafredo next year," said Elissonde. "I had extensive talks with Luca (Guercilena, General Manager of Trek-Segafredo) who right away convinced me of the team's project.

"I am really looking forward to coming to Trek-Segafredo and starting to work with new people and learning new things. In the next years, I hope to return to my aggressive way of racing and shine again while doing my utmost for the leaders of the team."

Guercilena is also pleased about this signing. "We have had an eye on Kenny for a while and found it was the right time to sign him," he explained. "He is a solid climber and a proven team player, and we expect him to be a great support rider for our GC-riders in the mountain stages, exactly what we need. I am pleased to have him on board, and we are looking forward to working with him in the next two years."
