No one believed it would be possible. A cyclo-crosser, a sprinter or time trial specialist that would bring me to the win of a mountain stage in the Tour de France. That majestic afternoon we amazed the world. A unique moment in modern cycling history.
Longing for yellow, but ending up in red. Together we've dreamt of a yellow jersey and yellow handlebars. That it only became red this year doesn't affect the bright shine of it. We fought for it, made it three in a row and you are looking to the future already.
Breaking through the glass ceiling in the biggest cycling race on this planet. I felt the power from day one, pushing my pedals. Grasping me at the handlebar. Together we've battled through France and claimed second place of the General Classification. Our performance is forever engraved in Tour de France history.
To race with someone that won almost everything is exciting. From cyclocross and mountain-biking to track and on the road. It was so special to race on home soil and be victorious in the Amstel Gold Race. I was a grateful part of this moment in cycling history.
Waiting for that moment, training for it. The comeback. The first win during the Tour de Wallonie, the finish line in Héron is part of my history now.
The moment we took the stage in Italy we knew that all eyes were on us. I put on my special design to support your Giro. But unfortunately it didn't work out as planned. We gave it all and for sure both of our outfits will be remembered.
Col du Vam. June 20th. That's it. We wrote history together with a tactical win. Dressing ourselves in the national colours. The red, white and blue will forever show our connection.
I witnessed you growing stronger. Day by day. Race by race. As you ended up winning multiple races as a young rider. What a promising development. You've earned these first spots in cycling history.
We both believed in a positive finish. Never giving in, never giving up. Until the very last bit of the final stage. It all came together. The work we've done resulted in the win of Itzulia Basque Country. A beautiful start to the season.
For some time, I stood on the sideline. But I saw your morale getting higher day by day. The kilometers we've made around hilly Limburg would've made me smile if I could. I'm proud to have been a part of your historic comeback in Tokyo.

Together we celebrated victories of our young teammates from up close. At the Dutch championship we made sure the red, white and blue went to Jumbo-Visma Development Team. We were part of it. What a day that was.
All the hard work. All the efforts. All the training kilometres in the mountains. It all came together on that sunny day in Andorra. That decisive moment where every single rider was dropped on the Beixalis during the Tour de France. You made me part of cycling history.

We have won on so many occasions. At times it felt like magic. The Amstel Gold Race, Gent-Wevelgem, Tour of Britain. Almost like the finish line was drawn towards us like a magnet. Unfortunately we didn't write history in the Tour of Flanders. But the rest is.

In Gent-Wevelgem we were able to stand out from the noise. That 7th place was an acknowledgement of talent and hard teamwork. I saw you were on fire during the Belgian spring classics and loved every inch of it.
Together we showed our ability to make the difference. Not only in winning stages or protecting our leader. But finishing top-10 in Spain. I'm proud that your name was written in that list for a lifetime.
From Paris to Nice and the Basque Country we've left our marks. But the work we did during La Vuelta and the top-10 finish in the Tour de Suisse paved our way to cycling history. On to new moments, remembering the old.
Knocking on the door of big names during the UAE Tour. We put down your name on the 4th spot. A strong team performance that shows future perspective. Nobody can take that away from us.
I am more than proud to have been the one to guide you to your comeback in competitive cycling. In our last year in black and yellow. Those first meters in Turin are truly historic for the both of us. And it was just you and me.
Two new faces to the team writing history together. Your first year on this level. My first kilometers in black and yellow ever. And history we made. The 29th of September. Otocac, Croatia. Our first win. Now you can glimpse onwards.
I was always near you. Sometimes on the roof of the car. Often feeling your mighty legs on the pedals. The Tour de France was not one for the books. Nevertheless, I enjoyed our moments in Spain. From Basque Country to Madrid.
Unlucky in France but steady as a rock in Spain. We fought for the classification of our leader. Together we took on the battle towards El Barraco and unfortunately came in second. I've learned from your perseverance and deeply respect you.
Now everybody knows frame size doesn't matter. Your first season at the team. Your first win of the GC during the Tour de Belle. I witnessed you performing better and better. Your name will be written much more in the future, but this year is in the pocket.
I needed to be strong when you were out of competition. We fell. You broke your shoulder. Weeks later we were back at it again. Guiding our leader to the red jersey. We were a solid part of this achievement. Writing our piece of cycling history.
As a team of cyclist and bicycle, we felt the power during the Coppi e Bartali. An honor to see you winning the GC there. And on to so many strong kilometers from Spain to France. We've definitely written history together.
