Jasper Philipsen and Alpecin-Deceuninck extend their collaboration until the end of 2028

After two previous two-year terms, Alpecin-Deceuninck and Jasper Philipsen have decided to extend their collaboration for four more years. "Our story is not yet fully written," says the 26-year-old sprint bomb.

On 1 January 2021, Jasper Philipsen joined our team. Barely a year and a half later, the agreement with the Roodhooft brothers' team was extended for another two years, until the end of this year.

"But our story is not yet fully written," says Jasper. "I feel good about this project. I am happy with the structure within the team and I definitely wanted to build on this. And the first talks with the management immediately indicated that this feeling is mutual. Moreover, the long-term planning appeals to me enormously."

Philipsen extended his deal until 2028. "Nice, right? That way I don't have to sit around the table every year and we can continue working together quietly in the coming years."

Earlier, Mathieu van der Poel also extended his long-term contract with Alpecin-Deceuninck. "That obviously gave me some extra confidence. We have an excellent relationship and we can build on that in the coming years. Hopefully that will lead to even more successes."

There is no doubt that team management is also delighted with the extended partnership. "Over the past few years, our team has grown and that has led to great successes. We will continue to grow, but continuity is also important and in that, after Mathieu van der Poel, it was important to keep Jasper on board for a longer period of time as well," says Philip Roodhooft. "Moreover, Mathieu and Jasper have already shown several times that they are compatible and can strengthen each other. That is a benefit both can continue to enjoy in the future."
