Bauke Mollema renews contract for two years

Trek-Segafredo is excited to announce they have come to a two-year agreement with Bauke Mollema, extending his contract with the team through 2020. Ever since Mollema, 31, joined Trek-Segafredo, he has impressed with his tenacious fighting spirit and professionalism.

Luca Guercilena, General Manager Trek-Segafredo: “He is a pillar of the team as one of our respectable leaders. He is a very strong guy, not only physically but also mentally. He proved that once again in the Tour de France this last year, where he came at the start with great ambitions for the GC. When he crashed and fell out of that fight, he changed his tactics immediately and started racing very aggressively in his hunt for a stage win. Unfortunately, he didn’t succeed, but he has proven once again that he is a fighter pur sang.

"We saw him do it again in yesterday's stage 5 at the Vuelta. We are really happy that Bauke will stay with the team for two more years. Alongside Richie Porte we will have two extremely strong climbers sharing opportunities to battle for the GC throughout the season. I am confident that this will turn out really successful for the team and I am looking forward to seeing these two out on the road next year.”

Bauke Mollema: “I am very grateful for the confidence Trek-Segafredo has put in me. I am looking forward to another two great years on this team. When I look at our riders, staff, and sponsors, I can only conclude that we have a great team and I am very happy and proud to be a part of it. In the next few years, I hope to continue getting stronger and also use my experience to push the rest of the team to a higher level.”
