Dylan Groenewegen has announced a surprisingly late move to Team BikeExchange-Jayco for 2022.

The Dutch rider -who has achieved more than fifty victories with the formation- has agreed with Jumbo-Visma to depart to Australian team for the upcoming season.

"Dylan's desire to ride the biggest races is very understandable", said Jumbo-Visma's general manager Richard Plugge.

"We have always had an excellent relationship. That is why we decided to cooperate with his wish for a transfer. On the other hand, it's a pity because Dylan is a great rider and a great man. I sincerely hope that he will be successful again on the highest podium."

The 29-year-old -who endured a difficult moment in his career after the heavy crash in the first stage of the 2020 Tour de Pologne that also affected fellow countryman Fabio Jakobsen- has signed a three-year contract with BikeExchange-Jayco.

"First of all, I must thank Team Jumbo-Visma and all the staff and riders that I have been working with over the past six years," commented Groenewegen. "We have had amazing results together and I will always be grateful for this.

"Now it is time to start another chapter of my life and my professional career, and I strongly believe that joining Team BikeExchange-Jayco now is the right to move and environment for me to start winning again. Since I started to talk to Brent (Copeland) and the technical staff, I felt that this was the right place and it is an incredible opportunity, I am looking forward to fighting for important results with the team."

The Australian formation is pleased with the signing of the four-time Tour de France stage winner. "Dylan doesn't need much of an introduction, everyone in the peloton knows him and the potential he has as a sprinter, as well as a great team player, and we certainly believe he will adapt perfectly to our team," said BikeExchange-Jayco General manager Brent Copeland.

"Our team owner, Gerry Ryan, has created and supported, since the beginning of the negotiation, the right path to follow in order to secure such a great rider for our team's future. Our performance staff, together with our Head Sport director Matthew White, are already at work to ensure Dylan has the full support he deserves in order to perform to the best of his ability, as well as fit into the environment of the team."
