In a move that has sent shockwaves through the world of cycling, Mathieu van der Poel, the iconic rider from Alpecin–Deceuninck, has embarked on an unprecedented journey with Canyon Bicycles, sealing a historic 10-year partnership. This groundbreaking deal underscores the unwavering commitment of both parties to redefine excellence and dominate the cycling arena for the next decade.

Van der Poel's prowess on the saddle has long been acknowledged, with numerous victories in Road, Cyclocross, and Mountain Biking under his belt. Canyon, recognizing his unmatched talent and potential, has solidified their alliance, aiming to propel him to even greater heights of success.

Since their collaboration began in late 2017, Van der Poel's triumphs aboard Canyon bikes have been nothing short of remarkable, amassing an impressive tally of 163 victories. With this new contract, the stage is set for a continued legacy of dominance, with Canyon providing the cutting-edge equipment necessary to propel Van der Poel to countless podium finishes.

The signing ceremony, held in Koblenz, Germany, marks the beginning of a thrilling chapter in cycling history. Just days after assisting his teammate, Jasper Philipsen, to victory in Milano-Sanremo, Van der Poel expressed his excitement about the future, citing ambitions that include the upcoming Paris Olympics.

In his own words, Van der Poel stated, “Canyon has been an incredible partner. We have developed bikes that have helped me succeed in Classics, World Championships, and Grand Tours. But I’m still incredibly hungry for success. There are several milestones on my radar, including the Paris Olympics this summer.”

This monumental agreement not only secures Van der Poel's allegiance to Canyon but also extends the partnership between Canyon and Alpecin-Deceuninck. This extension reflects a shared commitment to excellence, ensuring that the team continues to dominate the cycling circuit with the support of Canyon's high-performance bicycles.

The management of Alpecin-Deceuninck, Philip and Christoph Roodhooft, expressed their enthusiasm for the extended partnership, emphasizing their vision of creating a multi-disciplinary team comprised of the most talented riders in the world. This vision, they assert, is made possible through partnerships with industry-leading brands like Canyon.

To further solidify his future in professional cycling, Van der Poel has also prolonged his contract with Alpecin-Deceuninck until 2028, affirming his dedication to the team and its objectives.

With this monumental deal now inked, Van der Poel's sights are set on the Belgian classics, including E3 and Gent-Wevelgem, followed by the Spring Monuments, culminating in the Tour of Flanders, Paris-Roubaix, Amstel Gold, and Liege-Bastogne-Liege.

As the cycling world eagerly anticipates the next chapter in Van der Poel's illustrious career, one thing remains certain: with Canyon by his side, the road to victory has never looked more promising.
