Jumbo-Visma has confirmed the signing of Dutch rider Sam Oomen for the next three seasons.

The Dutch young talent started his career in the WorldTour at the team currently know as Sunweb and there he showed his talents for climbs and to fight for the General Classification of stage races. The rider's palmares includes a victory at the Tour de l'Ain and top ten positions in the overall classifications of the Giro d'Italia, the Criterium du Dauphine, the Tour de Suisse, Tirreno-Adriatico and the Tour de Pologne.

"I had five good and joyful years at Team Sunweb," said Oomen. "Thinking about my future, it feels like the right moment to move on. It's great that I can take this new step at Team Jumbo-Visma.

"The knowledge, the philosophy, the love for the sport and the trust I feel in this team have convinced me that Team Jumbo-Visma is the right team for me. I am really looking forward to working in a new environment, with many new faces but also with some old acquaintances. I'm really happy with that."

Merijn Zeeman, sports director of Jumbo-Visma, welcomed the signing of the Dutch rider. "Sam is the biggest young Dutch stage race talent," he explained. "We followed him for several years with great interest. We are very happy that he has now chosen us. We are convinced that, with the right guidance, Sam can become even better. We want to gradually guide him towards the world top."
