Team Sunweb have handed two-year contract extensions to both Nikias Arndt and Florian Stork, which will keep them with the German WorldTour team until at least the end of the 2022 season.

Twenty-eight-year-old Arndt is in his eighth year with the squad, and has developed into somewhat of a road captain for Sunweb, although he still finds himself with plenty of opportunities to ride for himself, which include having won stage 8 of the 2019 Vuelta a España in a reduced-bunch sprint. Australian fans of the sport will also remember him for his 2017 victory at the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race, while the previous year, Arndt sprinted to victory on the final stage of the Giro d'Italia in Turin.

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.
