Team Jumbo-Visma will ride Cervélo bikes from 2021 onwards. The Dutch cycling team and the innovative bike manufacturer have signed for a partnership for multiple years. The men’s team, the development team and the new women’s team, announced this morning, will be supported by Cervélo.
Cervélo’s composites and aerodynamics engineers will develop future products with Team Jumbo-Visma to help the team reach its goals. Primoz Roglic, Tom Dumoulin, Marianne Vos and our other riders will have the choice to select the most suitable bike for any race with the R5 disc, S5, P5 and Caledonia. The women’s and development team will be equipped with Reserve carbon wheels, co-designed by Cervélo.
Richard Plugge, managing director of Team Jumbo-Visma: “This is a great step for our team. Cervélo is an innovative brand and an industry leader by technology. We are very happy that our cycling teams will be riding on Cervélo from next year. I am confident that we can further innovate to build even faster bikes together. Working together and striving for the best is our daily objective.” The Dutchman is excited about the collaboration. “We look forward with confidence to work with Cervélo. The brand is part of Pon, just like us they are a Dutch global company. It is great that two Dutch brands that make a global impact have found each other.”

Cervélo’s managing director Nick McAdams: “We are very proud to partner with Team Jumbo-Visma. As one of the best teams in the world, they have the riders on board to race Cervélo bikes all year long, in every category and in all kinds of races. They also have a lot of specific knowledge that will help us make the riders faster. We are very much looking forward to our cooperation and to seeing the team riding Cervélo from next season.”
After seven years, Team Jumbo-Visma says goodbye to the current bike partner Bianchi. Plugge: “We would like to thank Bianchi for the collaboration. They supported us through thick and thin in recent years. Bianchi has contributed to building the team we are today and together we have achieved great results.” A few examples of the big achievements are a victory, podium spots and multiple wins in the three grand tours, Liège-Bastogne-Liège and Milano-Sanremo. That makes it for now 177 victories in total on Bianchi bikes. “The Vuelta is our last road race on this bike. We will do everything we can to conclude the collaboration in style.”
Team Jumbo-Visma will race on Cervélo bicycles for the first time in January.
