Juan Pedro López extends contract with Trek-Segafredo

15.11.2022: Despite already having a contract in place for 2023, López and Trek-Segafredo have committed to an additional two more years together. The decision to entrust the next three years of his professional career to the Team was an easy one for the 25-


Despite already having a contract in place for 2023, López and Trek-Segafredo have committed to an additional two more years together.
 


The decision to entrust the next three years of his professional career to the Team was an easy one for the 25-year-old.
 



“Since I first joined Trek-Segafredo as a stagiaire in 2019, I have grown so much as person and as a rider,” said López. “I feel like the environment the Team has created has been perfect for me and my journey and it continues to be the place where I want to be. It really feels like I have found myself at home here. People always say it, but I really believe it’s true that this team is like my family.
 


“By extending my contract early, Luca and the Team are really showing that they trust me and that they believe in me the way I believe in myself,” continued López. “That is a super special feeling and I really want to be able to show that it was worth it over the next three years now.”
 


The young Spaniard rose to prominence at the 2022 Giro d’Italia with his ten-day stint in the Maglia Rosa but remains hungry for more with a first professional victory still eluding him.
 


“While the Giro d’Italia was, of course, very special for me this year, the Vuelta didn't go how I expected, or wanted, on a personal performance level,” explained López. “However, I really learned so much at both races and for different reasons both have only motivated me more to keep chasing that elusive victory. I really want to be able to show the team that their faith in me is justified and that I can also be a winner.”
 


Trek-Segafredo General Manager Luca Guercilena believes that López deserves to have the backing of the Team after consistently showing his potential over the last two years.
 


“Juanpe is a talented young rider who I believe has earned our trust and commitment since joining us as a stagiaire around three years ago,” said Guercilena. “We saw this year that he is making steps forward and he continues to be very willing to learn from the more experienced riders on the Team.”
 


“Of course, most notably in 2022, he wore the Maglia Rosa for ten days, finished 10th overall and took home the best young rider’s jersey at the Giro d’Italia. This performance really cemented what we, as a team, had been discussing already - that we wanted to invest further in his career and extend his existing contract early. We really believe that Juanpe is capable of fulfilling the potential we see in him, and I am confident that it won’t be long until we see him secure that first win.”
