Sepp Kuss and Team Jumbo-Visma will stay with each other for at least three more years after the current cycling season. The 26-year-old American announced that this afternoon in a chat session with fans and cycling enthusiasts.
“I’m really happy to extend with the team. For me, over the past three years, it has felt really comfortable for me”, Kuss said. “Everybody on the staff and all the riders make Team Jumbo-Visma a very nice environment for me. The special thing about the team is that everybody understands me as an athlete and, more importantly, as a person. That way we get the most out of each other. I always get opportunities and that helps me stay motivated. We are always striving for something big at this team and that’s really exciting and really special. So I hope to continue that and keep making some good memories.”
Sportive director of Team Jumbo-Visma, Merijn Zeeman, is very pleased with the extended stay of the rider who has achieved great victories in the Tour of Utah, the Vuelta and the Dauphiné. “Sepp is one of the best climbers in the peloton. He has grown into a rider who takes his own chances, but he is also super important in supporting the leaders. He is increasingly becoming a leader himself and we will guide him in discovering his limits in the upcoming years.”
