Amund Jansen extends with Team LottoNL-Jumbo

Amund Grondahl Jansen will be part of Team LottoNL-Jumbo for another two years. The Norwegian rider (24) joined the Dutch squad of team manager Richard Plugge in 2017. Jansen is considered a classic rider, however this season he also plays an important role in Dylan Groenewegen’s lead-out.

“Talent development and lead up young riders are key values within our sportive plans. It’s a logic step that Amund extends his time with us and I’m happy that he wanted it himself”, Plugge says.

“I like it a lot at Team LottoNL-Jumbo”, Jansen adds. “It's the perfect team for me. I ride a program which fits me, such as the spring classics. The cobblestone classics are what I'm best at. I'm very happy with my new contract. I showed that I have potential, so they extended it. I like to keep working in the same team, with the same trainer, the same team captains, the system I know. And I think it's super to continue to develop myself here.”
