"I want to be better in the finals of Monuments - play a bigger role there and 'make' the race. And, aside from the Classics, I want to develop further and play a part in other races, especially for the rest of 2016."

Trek-Segafredo has announced that Jasper Stuyven has extended his contract for two more years. 

Stuyven, 24, recently completed a successful Classics campaign, winning Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne in a dramatic style, before turning his full attention in supporting Fabian Cancellara in the remaining cobbled races. 

The talented Belgian, highly coveted for his expertise in the cobbled Classics, signed his first professional contract in 2014 with Trek-Segafredo (formally Trek Factory Racing) and will continue with the team through 2018. 

Stuyven said: "I’m very happy to stay with Trek-Segafredo. I feel super good with this team, and I don't want to go anywhere else. I am glad to have had the trust to be a leader in a semi-classic this spring, and I’m proud that I was able to prove it in Kuurne with a win. 

"I am thankful to Dirk (Demol, director) and Luca (Guercilena, general manager) for their trust in me. The victory in Kuurne gave me extra confidence towards my ambitions for 2017 to take the next big step from the semi-Classics to the Classics.

"I want to be better in the finals of Monuments - play a bigger role there and 'make' the race. And, aside from the Classics, I want to develop further and play a part in other races, especially for the rest of 2016. I am confident in my sprint, and I am motivated to have a very good second part of the season."

Trek-Segafredo hurried to renew Stuyven's contract after his achievements this spring.

Luca Guercilena said: "Re-signing Jasper was a priority for us, and I’m glad we came to an agreement so easily. I was very pleased with his performance in the Classics and of course his impressive solo win in Kuurne. I am convinced he’s ready for the next step.

"Jasper is really suited for the Classics, in terms of his physiology and in his capacity to lead a team. Besides that, he is fast in tough sprints, like he proved last year in the Vuelta. He is competitive in many types of races, and we are thrilled he will remain with Trek-Segafredo for another two years."

Stuyven will next line up in the Tour of California in May.
