After launching his pro career with Cannondale-Drapac, 26-year-old Latvian Toms Skujins will be joining Trek-Segafredo in 2018. A multiple stage winner at the Amgen Tour of California and Settimana Internazionale Coppi e Bartali, Skujins signed a two-year deal with the team.
“I am thrilled to join Trek-Segafredo because it’s such a great team,” Skujins said. “Right after my first conversations with Luca [Guercilena, General Manager] and the team’s directors, I immediately felt this would be the right team for me. It’s great to hear what the plans are for the team as a whole and I will do my very best to be a part of that. It’s just like I have been doing in the previous years: making the races exciting, and who knows, springing a surprise here and there.”
