Tinkoff-Saxo is happy to count for the sixth consecutive year Jesús Hernández among its core squad. The Spanish rider will provide his support to the team in 2016 and will work to help its race leaders with the same dedication that has marked his 11 years as a professional rider.

The long-time, faithful lieutenant of Tinkoff-Saxo's team leader Alberto Contador will again be at the service of the team, with the same dedication he has shown since he joined in 2011. As Hernández stated, he considers this to be his main strength as a rider. "I commit myself 100% to the squad and its leader and place the team goals above any personal ambitions", stated Hernández who in fact considers as highlights of his professional career the Grand Tours he won with Contador.

"I'm, obviously, delighted to be one more year with what I consider to be the best professional cycling team in the world, led by the best rider in the world, Alberto Contador. It would be my dream to help Alberto win the Tour de France, especially since it will also be the final year of his career", commented Hernández.

"Since there is such a big pool of excellent talent in this team, I might not be able to race in the Tour next year. Nevertheless, I will show the same commitment and put on the same effort regardless of what race my team needs me in", concluded Hernández.

Steven de Jongh, Head Sport Director of Tinkoff-Saxo, commented on the extension of Hernández's contract to 2016: "Jesús is a skillful domestique who has a good and long-lasting relation with Alberto and we are happy to have him in the team for one more year. We are sure that he will provide key support to our leaders in all his races next season".
