Italian time-trial specialist Edoardo Affini has joined Jumbo-Visma on a three-year deal. The 24-year-old turned professional with Mitchelton-Scott in 2019 and won stages in both the Tour of Norway and Tour of Britain, as well as finishing third in the European time trial championships behind Remco Evenepoel and Kasper Agreen.  The Italian won the U23 version of the event in 2018.

With his contract up at Mitchelton and with Jumbo Visma looking to strengthen the core of their domestiques, Affini has moved over to the Dutch team. He is the third signing made by Jumbo-Visma in the last few weeks after Gijs Leemreize and David Dekker both joined.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
