Wout Van Aert renews with the Jumbo-Visma until 2024

The versatile Belgian rider, one of the most sought-after in the peloton, will continue for the next three seasons in the Dutch squad.


Wout Van Aert already has his future defined for the coming seasons. Despite the interest of other great teams in the peloton such as the Ineos-Grenadiers, the Belgian cyclist has renewed for the next three seasons with the Jumbo-Visma, where they have become one of the pillars of the team and where he will continue to help and seek wins at least until the year 2024.

In statements collected by the Dutch team, which announced the renewal of Van Aert with a nice video showing the versatility of the runner, Van Aert was very happy for his continuity. "Even after 2021 he will be a proud member of the Jumbo-Visma. I wanted to extend my relationship because here I have become a better cyclist. I think everyone has seen the great steps that I have taken as a cyclist in these years. I have always been in shape when I needed it ".

Van Aert also believes that the renewal is the best decision he could make and denied that he had spoken with another team, since his intention was to renew. "I owe a lot to the team for allowing me to work towards my goals. The decision to renew appeared very quickly in my head. Of course there are other things that come into play and that take time. The intention was good on the part of both and I was confident everything went well. I am very happy to be able to pursue more successes in this very familiar environment. I feel good here and in recent years I have shown it. Needless to say, there were more teams interested in me but I have never spoken with another team. My goal was to extend my contract here. We have the best team in the world and the best thing for me was to stay. I am proud that it was done and I am relieved to be able to talk about it. "
