EF Education-Nippo has announced the contract extension for American rider Neilson Powless.

The American rider just won the Clásica San Sebastián after showing an attacking style not only in the Spanish race but also in last year's Tour de France. Just days after his first win in the professional peloton, the rider has signed a new deal with the American formation.

"I really feel like I am a part of EF," Neilson said. "I'm part of the company and part of the team. The way that we operate is just unparalleled in cycling. It really feels like a family, with the way that the staff and everyone takes into account the riders' lives and the riders' well-being.

"It is always a really nice experience to go to a race or travel, because they always take good care of us."

The first tribally recognized Native Nirth American rider to be in the Tour de France is aiming to develop into a General Classification contender like one of his role models, Rigoberto Urán. "I have learned quite a bit from Rigo and seeing the way he lives and the way he goes about his days," he mentioned.

"He is very professional all year, but he really enjoys his life at the same time."
