Jumbo-Visma has announced the formal contract extension for Dylan Groenewegen for the next four seasons.

On the day that it has been known that mathematically the Dutchman is the rider with the most victories this 2019 season, his team has formalised his contract extension, after reaching a verbal agreement in the summer. Groenewegen -who took 15 victories in 2019- has taken the wins in races like Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne, Paris-Nice, Bruges-De Panne and in four stages of the Tour de France.

"I'm now 26 years old, so I'm still getting stronger", the rider commented. "I joined the team at the age of 22. Since then, I have improved a lot. This happened to every rider who joined the team. We started at zero and look where we are now. I am where I want to be and the team is where it wants to be. This team is doing very well. When I indicate things that can be improved, they will be examined and the people in the team will start working on them. That's the deciding factor for me to stay here.

"Everything is taken into consideration for me to be able to sprint as fast as possible. This gets better every year. Of course, you also have a look at other teams, but I really feel at home here. We have reached a good agreement. I have what I want here. So why change teams? Trust in each other is very important. I feel the confidence the team has in me and I think the team feels the confidence I have in them. The guys around me are doing great. Looking at this year, you can see that I have a super train around me. I'm sure that by staying here, I'll continue to grow. I would like to take on that challenge with the team."
