Belgian rider Oliver Naesen has extended his contract with AG2R La Mondiale for three more years, until 2023.

Naesen arrived to the French team in 2017 and there he has taken victories in races like the Bretagne Classic - Ouest-France and la Poly Normande, as well as stepped on podium positions of competitions like Milano-Sanremo, the Eneco Tour, Gent Wevelgem, the E3 Harelbeke and the 4 Jours de Dunkerque.

"I am very happy to extend for three more seasons," said Naesen. "It's a great mark of trust from the AG2R La Mondiale team. Since 2017, the team has not stopped progressing, either in sport or in its structure and approach. Why look elsewhere for what works so well here? The group of classics racers is improving every year and it will be even better in the future. There is a very good atmosphere in the team as well.

"I am very ambitious for the seasons to come. I can't wait to start the racing season again on August 1, following what has been a very extraordinary situation for everyone. With the Tour de France taking place before the classics, it's ideal for a rider like me. The calendar is busy but not overloaded, and everything will be in place so that I have a good year."

Vincent Lavenu, team manager of AG2R La Mondiale, is also pleased about this news. "Extending Oliver Naesen's contract for three years is a great satisfaction," he explained. Oliver is one of the executives on the team, who has grown up with us. He is now one of the best classic racers in the world and we will build a successful team by his side so that he can achieve his sporting goals.

"Beyond his quality as a rider, it's the man, his values and his joie de vivre, that is such an important element in the life of the whole team."
