Trek-Segafredo announced Monday that they have agreed to a two-year extension with Bauke Mollema that will see the Dutchman race with the American WorldTour outfit through 2022. The team also confirmed that he and teammate Richie Porte will maintain co-leadership roles at the Tour de France rescheduled for August 29-September 20.

Mollema, who won last year’s Il Lombardia, said the team’s structure will allow him to challenge himself as a rider. "For me, the number one priority was to extend with Trek-Segafredo, and thankfully, the team felt the same way," Mollema said in a team press release.

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.
