Kasper Asgreen has decided to extend his contract with Deceuninck-QuickStep until 2024. After signing a contract with this team in 2018, he proved to be one of the leading cyclists and it is no wonder that QuickStep decided to offer a new contract to the young Dane.
It seems that Asgreen did not have many dilemmas about the contract extension and he is happy to spend at least another 3 years in a team in which he has achieved many successes. "Staying here was a no-brainer for me.
Deceuninck-QuickStep is the most successful team in the world, and ever since I was an amateur, I dreamed of joining them, as I loved how they always developed young riders into winners," Asgreen said, as quoted by cyclingnews The extension of his contract will be a motivating factor for him to continue with good races, and to certainly achieve even better results and continue where he left off.
"Three years on, I still believe it’s the best environment for me and signing an extension so early into the season makes me happy and motivates me even more to perform. I want to thank everyone for their support and what they did and continue to do for me."
Team boss Patrick Lefevere hasn’t given much thought to extending his contract with Asgreen given how good Asgreen is as a cyclist, and that the team with him has a bright future. "Retaining Kasper’s services for three more years is another building block in helping to secure the future of the team," said Lefevere, who recently tied Remco Evenepoel down to a new long-term deal.
For Asgreen, everyone on the team has only words of praise. Asgreen is a driver who is not overbearing, and who can really help his team "He is a great rider, but also someone who has always kept his feet firmly on the ground, and this, doubled by a huge ambition, has helped him record an incredible progress in the last three years.
Kasper had a particularly successful 2020 when he achieved the best results. He is expected to race better and better and it is certain that Kasper will not let down those who have trusted him. "You could see him grow season after season, and this spring he joined the Monument winners club, which is a testimony of his talent. We are confident he can still improve and help us win many other races."
