The 26-year-old said it “means everything” to extend his stay, which will see him race in yellow and black for the next five years.

“I have had a fantastic journey with the team who has supported me in every way to become the rider I am today,” he said. “I appreciate the quality of the team and the people here and feel at home.

“Every day we push each other to get better, and this is where I can fulfill my full potential. We will definitely reach an even higher level together. I’m excited to continue growing within the team.”

“It means everything to me to know that I will be in the team for a further five years. It gives me peace of mind and the opportunity to focus on my goals even more.”

In an official Jumbo-Visma announcement on Tuesday, Vingegaard set his sights on more Tour de France wins following last year’s success.

“The Tour de France is something very special,” he said.

“The feeling I had, standing on top of the podium, was fantastic. My goal is to go for many more wins. In the tour, but also in other races to come.”

Jumbo-Visma general manager Richard Plugge said: “Jonas is a fantastic fit for us: he is eager to learn and easy to coach, and also pushes us ahead as a team.

“He was a rough diamond when he first came to the team. Together, we developed significantly, ultimately winning the Tour de France.

“Jonas is essential to our goals if we’re to maintain our position at the top.”

The Danish rider has already won two stage races this year ahead of his bid to win back-to-back Tour de France titles.
