Cervélo and Team Jumbo-Visma have signed a new contract. The bike supplier and sports team have extended their cooperation for an indefinite period. The agreement is in this area similar to the commitment both title sponsors Jumbo and Visma made towards the team. It contributes in enabling the team to build it out further and long term following their future strategy.
The parties just started working together from the 2021 season, but decided to break open the contract because of the successful start. With this extension, the World Tour Team, women’s team, development team and the speed skaters are secured of quality bikes the coming years. The cycling team already had some big successes on the bikes. Marianne Vos and Wout van Aert both won Gent-Wevelgem and the Amstel Gold Race. The riders of the team also collected multiple national titles.
Richard Plugge, CEO of Team Jumbo-Visma: “Cervélo already showed enormous commitment towards the team and most importantly our riders and technical staff are very satisfied. There is a good collaboration and both we have the same mindset to become every day better. We made a big step forward because of the choice in different frame types as we truly have the right bike for every race, and on top each frame is of the highest quality. Cervélo also understands what professional cycling is about and going forward together we will work hard to contribute to keep their bikes leading the pack.”

Richard Keeskamp, Sports Marketing Director of Cervélo: “From the start of our cooperation, Team Jumbo-Visma is exceeding our expectations in every area. We are confident that the team can keep up this standard and even improve. Our mentalities just match perfectly as we are both never satisfied and always on the lookout for further innovations. Going forward the team’s feedback will be extremely valuable for the development of our performance bikes.”
