Team Sunweb (Netherlands) - Press Release: Team Sunweb are happy to announce that Asbjørn Kragh Andersen and Nicholas Roche have extended their contracts with the team, with the duo riding in the team’s colours until the end of 2021.
Asbjørn Kragh Andersen (DEN):
After joining the team at the start of the year Kragh Andersen has proven himself to be a great team player. Providing good support in the classics and also adding firepower to the sprint train, he’s been part of the team successes at Nokere Koerse and the Tour of Norway where he has done important work in the race finales. Looking towards the next two seasons, Kragh Andersen is keen to continue his development with the team and chase more successes together.
Nicholas Roche (IRL):
A rider with years of experience in the peloton, Roche has had a great debut season with the team. After working strongly in support of teammates in the earlier part of the year, Roche finished in a tenth place overall at the Tour de Suisse before also picking up a top ten on stage nine at the Tour de France, after showing his determination in multiple breakaways throughout the three weeks. His favourite race, the Vuelta a España, marked one of the best moments in his career when after a second place on stage two, he moved into the race leader’s jersey for the next three stages. His Vuelta abruptly ended after a crash forced him to abandon but that has only made Roche hungrier for success with the team in the coming years.
