Team Jumbo-Visma has extended the contract of Jonas Vingegaard. The 23-year-old Danish talent will remain with the team of manager Richard Plugge at least until the end of 2022.
The rider is delighted with his contract extension. “I am happy that I’ve extended my contract with Team Jumbo-Visma. I really like my stay with the team so far. Moreover, I have already been able to develop well and hope to achieve higher goals with the team in the near future. I am proud to be part of this team. At the moment there is no team that suits me better.”
The climber, from the Danish city of Glyngøre, was successful several times in 2019. His greatest success was in the Tour of Poland, where he won the queen stage. It meant his first victory in the WorldTour. In addition, the Dane achieved a second place in the classification of last year’s Tour of Denmark.

He expects Vingegaard to develop even further in the coming years. “Jonas is a promising talent. We have high hopes for him. We are happy that we have been able to break open his contract and extend it until the end of 2022. In this way, we can continue to build a successful career together.”
