Team LottoNL-Jumbo confirms traineeship Adriaan Janssen

Under 23 rider Adriaan Janssen will join Team LottoNL-Jumbo as per July 25th as a trainee. The 21 year old Dutch cyclist from Diepenveen is the current leader in the young rider classification of the Topcompetitie in the Netherlands. Team LottoNL-Jumbo is the main sponsor of this classification.

Janssen is over the moon with the chance he gets. “I would like to experience what it means to ride in such a pro team and I wish to learn how to improve as a rider”, he says. “Hopefully I can participate in some nice races and show the best of myself. My goal is to show that I’m ready for the World Tour level.”

Talent development and commitment to the lead-up of young Dutch riders are a key part of the Team LottoNL-Jumbo policy. Janssen’s traineeship is one of its exponents. Team manager Richard Plugge: “We want to win on top, but we also want to encourage development of cyclists. To reward the best young rider in the Topcompetitie with a traineeship is just one of our initiatives. We want to welcome Janssen within our team. Our coaches and his management will compose a suitable race program for him.”
