I’ve grown up here and here is where I got right values – for cycling and also for the world away from sport. I’ve always stayed in friendly relationships with the team management and now I’m grateful for their trust in me. I can’t wait to start the new season, one I have high hopes for. I know Filip from when I was a junior and I have great respect towards him. I believe we have a successful year ahead and I will give back to everyone that helped me get to this point. Team for 2019 is very good and I already look forward with everybody on the upcoming team camp.”
