Team Sunweb are delighted to announce that Joris Nieuwenhuis has extended his contract, riding in the team’s colours until the end of 2022.
A former U23 cyclocross World Champion, Nieuwenhuis made an impressive start to his pro career on the road with Team Sunweb Men’s program in 2019. At only his second WorldTour race with the team, he finished fourth on a testing stage five at the Tour of California, following up with a strong second place on stage three at the Tour of Norway soon after. Nieuwenhuis continued his combined cyclocross-road program through the winter, his second season riding cyclocross in the elite ranks. His consistency earned him a solid tenth overall in the eventual World Cup standings, with his season highlight a third place at the Dutch national championships.
