Danish rider Chris Juul-Jensen has extended his contract with Mitchelton-Scott until 2021.

Juul-Jensen arrived to the Australian team in 2016 and has shown to be one of the most reliable support riders, and is important for several of the victories of the formation. The 30-year-old's experience ranges from grand tours to one-day classics.

"The last four years have been as good as I expected in terms of how I imaged the team before I joined," the Dane commented. "They've lived up to all expectations, it is a team that I really like to be on, both on the personal side of things and also the sporting side of things. I feel like I have developed into the type of rider I saw myself as, as a trusted domestique but the team still gives the freedom to pursue your own chances when they're there.

"Within the four-years that I have been here, Mitchelton-Scott has developed into a general classification team with a massive string of big GC results but also one-day results. There's so much to ride for but also so many riders to ride for, which makes my job so enjoyable. It has to be one of the few teams that still has most of the same staff than when they started eight years ago and that makes a massive difference and a great atmosphere. I couldn't really imagine myself happier anywhere else. It is pretty easy when I look ahead to the year to come, I just wanted to get better at what I am doing and have more responsibility as the domestique that I am within the team."
