Jumbo-Visma has strengthened itself with Edoardo Affini. The Italian time trial specialist comes over from Mitchelton-Scott and signed an agreement, which will connect him to the Dutch team until the end of 2023.
Merijn Zeeman of Jumbo-Visma sees Affini playing an important role. “Edoardo will assist Wout van Aert in the classics and will be given a place in the sprint train of Dylan Groenewegen. In addition, he is a talented time trialist. The team will certainly help him to get even better in that discipline. We think that with our guidance he can grow to the world top in time trial. ”
Affini calls his transfer a great opportunity. “This is a good step for me. The conversations with the team showed that they have a lot of confidence in me. I can develop well here and that is very important to me. There are a number of very experienced riders from whom I can learn a lot. I’m in my second year as a pro, but this season is of course very special. Hopefully from next season I will experience great moments in the shirt of Team Jumbo-Visma. ”
