Trek-Segafredo has announced the signing of Dutch rider Antwan Tolhoek until 2023.

The Dutch rider has inked a contract with the American team for two years, until at least 2023. The rider initially practised ice-skating, a sport that is popular in his native country, and after making a decision in favour of cycling, started his career in teams like Tinkoff, Rabobank and Roompot-Oranje Peloton, before taking a step to the WorldTour level with Jumbo Visma in 2017.

"I'm really happy that I'm going to ride for Trek-Segafredo for the coming two years," said Tolhoek. "I'm looking forward to racing Grand Tours again and fighting for a stage victory. Some experienced riders already showed that they get the chance to go in the breakaway and fight for a stage win with this Team, and that's my dream. I hope that I can get this dream into the books in the next two years with Trek-Segafredo.

"It was a hard decision to make to leave Jumbo-Visma because I have been riding with them since the start of my professional career, but when a team like Trek-Segafredo came and offered me the chance to ride for myself in big races and win a stage in a Grand Tour, then there was no doubt about me grabbing this opportunity."
