Breaking: Richie Porte signs a two-year contract with Trek-Segafredo

Richie PORTE

 

Richie Porte,33, has just signed a two-year contract with Trel-Segafredo and we’re still processing this sudden development.

 

Porte, one of the staple riders of BMC Racing team, has spent his last three years with the squad establishing himself as one of the most-talented stage riders in the world. His latest title was Tour de Suisse on June where Porte won first place.

 

The right thing to do

 

Many are suggesting that since BMC Racing has been struggling to sign a new sponsor, Richie Porte saw the move to Trek-Segafredo as the right thing to do.

 

The former Tour de Romandie and also Paris-Nice champion will now lead the lineup of the new squad in the long races like Tour de France, Giro among others.

 

“I am thrilled to finally confirm that I will join Trek-Segafredo in 2019. I had a great time at BMC Racing Team, and I want to thank them for the past three years, but I feel ready to take on another challenge, which I am certain I will find at Trek-Segafredo. I’m particularly looking forward to focusing on more races throughout the year,” Porte said.

 

“Of course, the Tour de France will still be a huge goal for me, and I am excited to go there to race with a super strong team alongside me, but I will also aim for one-week stage races, like the ones I have won before, and the ones I have never raced. Honestly, I am really excited to start this new chapter in my career. I can’t wait!”
