Team Jumbo-Visma has entered into multi-year agreements with Johannes Staune-Mit...
Team Jumbo-Visma has signed the Norwegian Tobias Foss for the coming two years. The 22-year-old talent is next season’s first new asset to the Dutch World Tour team of manager Richard Plugge. Foss comes from development team Uno-X from Norway. Team Jumbo-Visma considers Foss an all-round reinforcement who can stand his ground both uphill and in time trials.
“We scouted Tobias extensively. He also went on a training camp with us twice. Subsequently, we kept in touch, even when he was going through a difficult period as a rider. He has shown that he can overcome difficulties”, sportive director Merijn Zeeman explains the transfer of the young Norwegian.
"For my kind of rider, this team is the perfect team to develop further"
Foss is eager to make the switch next season. “I’m really looking forward to joining the team. For my kind of rider, Team Jumbo-Visma is the perfect team to develop further. Of all the World Tour teams, this team has the best talent development”, he says. “My ambition for the coming years is to help the team and the leaders to get good results and for myself to grow and take steps as a rider and as a person. I know the way of working at Team Jumbo-Visma and I feel privileged and happy to be part of it.”
