World Champion Mads Pedersen has extended his contract with Trek-Segafredo and is set to remain in the formation until the end of the 2022 season.

The 24-year-old has been in the team since 2017 and this new agreement means that he will stay there for at least six seasons. The rider -who beat Matteo Trentin and Stefan Küng to get the World title in the championships of Yorkshire- wants to remain in the place where he has received trust from the beginning.

"Luca (Guercilena) really believed in me three years ago when I first signed with the team," said Pedersen. "In fact, even in the previous year before that, when I was in a bit of trouble with Cult (Energy Pro Cycling) and Stölting he had already showed great confidence in me when he told me I would have a contract if the team closed. That team continued for one more year, so I stayed with them, but I was really happy that Luca gave me the confidence already back then. It was a huge factor in re-signing with the team now.

"I want to keep winning races. I want to be more consistent and more on the top level in the classics, not just the big races but in all the races, instead of popping up occasionally. That's my main goal right now and then, of course, to honor and show respect for the rainbow stripes."

General Manager, Luca Guercilena, showed his enthusiasm about this new deal. "It's very important for us to have the opportunity to work with Mads for another couple of seasons," he explained. "Having discovered him when he was a young talent and developing him into a World Champion has been hard but deeply rewarding work and I believe this gives us the confidence in a bright future.

"He is a winner and has a winning instinct and I firmly believe is on his way to be successful at the classics. Last season he had a hard time, but I trust that after the win at the Worlds, he will be more confident in his abilities, and I believe he will obtain great results during the upcoming seasons."
