Gogl extends with Trek-Segafredo through 2019 – News shorts

Michael Gogl has extended his contract with Trek-Segafredo through the 2019 season, the team announced Monday via press release.

The 23-year-old Austrian joined Trek at the start of the year and initially had a deal through 2018, but according to the release, he “was eager to extend it for an extra year” after making his debut this season.

A top 10 finish at the Amstel Gold Race stands out as Gogl’s most notable result so far this year.

“I am really happy about my first year with the team. I found everything I could have hoped for. Trek-Segafredo is for me the right place to develop myself as a rider. The team offers me the perfect surrounding and excels by its professional way of working,” Gogl said.

“This year I did my first Classics campaign in the Ardennes and I was really satisfied. After my 8th place in the Amstel Gold Race I started to believe the Ardennes Classics might be my thing. So, in the years to come I will look to obtain even better results in these races and I want to work hard to be able to improve further in that direction.”

Luca Guercilena, Trek-Segafredo general manager, described the decision as a long-term investment in the up-and-coming rider.
