Sam Oomen takes next step in career at Team Jumbo-Visma

Team Jumbo-Visma has contracted Sam Oomen for three seasons. The 25-year-old stage race talent was ready for the next step in his career and from both sides there is the conviction that he can reach his full potential at Team Jumbo-Visma.

“I had five good and joyful years at Team Sunweb. Thinking about my future, it feels like the right moment to move on. It’s great that I can take this new step at Team Jumbo-Visma. The knowledge, the philosophy, the love for the sport and the trust I feel in this team have convinced me that Team Jumbo-Visma is the right team for me. I am really looking forward to working in a new environment, with many new faces but also with some old acquaintances. I’m really happy with that”, Oomen explains.

That joy is mutual, confirms Merijn Zeeman, sportive director at Team Jumbo-Visma. “Sam is the biggest young Dutch stage race talent. We followed him for several years with great interest. We are very happy that he has now chosen us. We are convinced that, with the right guidance, Sam can become even better. We want to gradually guide him towards the world top”, Zeeman says.
