Wout van Aert signed a lengthy contract, inking a deal with Jumbo-Visma that sees Van Aert stay with the Dutch team until at least the end of 2026.

Wout van Aert:

"I feel very good with this team. We’ve already shown that I can perform at my best here. These successes are also thanks to the facilities the team has. It surprised me the team wanted to negotiate my contract again, but it's a nice recognition. We quickly agreed. I don't think a longer partnership poses any risks because we've been able to get better for the past four years. One of the team's slogans is 'better every day', which is not coming out of thin air. We keep improving in performance, the team's facilities, ... everything. Because of this, I'm confident I won't have to worry about being on this squad for the next four years. We constantly strive for the best, which made the decision of extending my contract simple. I give the team that assurance, and it gives me the peace of mind I need to succeed in the upcoming years."
