Team LottoNL-Jumbo extends contracts with De Tier and Wynants

Team LottoNL-Jumbo announces that Floris De Tier and Maarten Wynant have extended their contracts. The Belgium riders will be part of the Dutch World Tour team for another year.

Wynants is happy that he extended his contract: “This team keeps progressing. It’s a good thing I will be part of it next year.” The Belgium cyclist has been competing for Team LottoNL-Jumbo since 2011.

Sportive Director Merijn Zeeman thinks Wynants is a valued team player. “Maarten is a big value in the spring classics. But also for our sprinters and GC riders. We’re working on the team of the future. It’s good he’ll stay part of it.”

De Tier is also happy he’s staying with the team. “I notice the team is important for my development. In certain races, I really made a step forward compared to last year. Team LottoNL-Jumbo takes notice of the smallest things and everything within the team is well organized. I’m already looking forward to race in the team’s new jersey next year.”

Zeeman: “Floris is a promising climbing talent. We will work on his progress in the upcoming months and years.”

Earlier, Team LottoNL-Jumbo announced the contract extensions of Antwan Tolhoek and George Bennett. Gijs Van Hoecke will continue his career at another team.
