Saxo-Tinkoff Extend Contracts

Christopher Juul-JensenTeam Saxo-Tinkoff have announced that they and 24-year-old Danish rider Christopher Juul-Jensen are to extend contracts through to 2016. A strong all-rounder, Juul-Jensen joined the team two years ago as a neo pro and has since proved his worth with the Danish-based World Tour-team; something which makes the extension an obvious decision says team owner Bjarne Riis – ‘To agree on a new deal with Christopher was an easy choice for us. Christopher fits perfectly in the team, he is very well liked by everyone in the organisation, he has a great spirit, he is a true worker on the road and already an integral part of our Spring Classic campaign…’


For his part Juul-Jensen added, ‘In a very tough market I see this deal as a great pat on the shoulder and a confirmation of the team’s trust and belief in me, and this surely makes me very proud. Personally I also feel I have taken some big steps in my development, especially when it comes to gaining both the physical and mental toughness needed at this level, and I look forward to continue this process. I know that with hard and dedicated work I can be a great helper to my teammates, but also getting some results myself in the years to come. At the same time I really feel at home at this team and I like the setup around the riders. So to be able to continue here simply makes me very happy.’
