Davide Ballerini has agreed to a two-year extension of his contract with Deceuninck-Quick-Step.

The 2021 season has been outstanding for the Italian -who has been in the Belgian formation since 2020. He became the first rider of his country in eight years to win the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, made his debut at the Tour de France and took two stage victories at the Tour de la Provence.

"I am really happy, because I can continue my dream here," said Ballerini. "I feel excellent here, and at no point was I thinking about leaving this team. It's like a family for me, so continuing was an easy decision. With the Wolfpack I won my first big one-day race, Omloop, and this makes me confident that one day I can fight for victory in Paris-Roubaix, which is the biggest goal of my career.

"Racing the Tour de France and playing a part in Mark's success in the points classification also makes me very proud and makes for another great memory. For the next two years, I am motivated to work hard, to improve and to help the team remain the best in the world."

Deceuninck-Quick-Step CEO Patrick Lefevere thinks the Italian has a bright future ahead of him. "We knew his potential when we signed him, and Davide didn't disappoint," he commented. "He took several victories with us in these two years, and at the same time, showed that he is always ready to work for his teammates.

"On top of that, he still has a lot of room to improve, and that's why signing a new contract was the logical thing to do. We are happy that he is happy here and has agreed to stay with the Wolfpack."
