FABIO FELLINE
TREK - SEGAFREDO

Italian rider Fabio Felline has extended his contract with Trek-Segafredo until the end of the 2017 season.

The most prominent achievements of the cyclist's career include the Green Points Classification jersey in the 2016 Vuelta a España, a second place in the 2016 Tour de Pologne and a third place in the 2016 Criterium International.

"I am really happy to continue my career with Trek-Segafredo," said Fellini, "because in this team I have found a special group of colleagues and teammates, which is for me really important. If you get along well, and if you feel good with the teammates and the staff, you also feel the serenity to do your work without any problems.

"I had the strangest of seasons with my crash in Amstel Gold Race, but the team didn't forget about me. This human aspect I've encountered in our team was a really important point for me. You know, the team treats me as a person, not just a rider, and that is for me of utmost importance to be able to give it my all."

General Manages Luca Guercilena is happy about the renewal of the Italian, who has been in the team since 2014. "Fabio has been very professional since the beginning, but I have to admit I am very, very proud of the way he behaved after his horrifying crash in this year's Amstel Gold Race. He was really focused on his recovery and worked hard to be back on the bike as soon as he could.

"It goes without saying we are very pleased to have re-signed Fabio for the next season. With the development he has undergone, I expect him to show us some great things in the coming year."
