Revelation Bart Lemmen extends contract with Team Visma | Lease a Bike by two years

Team Visma | Lease a Bike has extended Bart Lemmen's contract by two years. The 28-year-old ex-military member, currently debuting in the Tour de France, is now secured with the Dutch WorldTour team until the end of 2027.

With a fifth place in the Tour Down Under, a tenth place in the UAE Tour, and a second place in the Tour of Norway, Bart Lemmen is one of the revelations of the 2024 cycling season. He is only in his second season as a professional cyclist and his first at the WorldTour. Thanks to his strong performances, Lemmen is currently making his debut in the Tour de France. This Tour debut illustrates the impressive rise of the Dutchman, who was working for the air force just three years ago.

"His personality and maturity are very strong. He is self-aware, attentive to everything needed to improve, and is a true team player"

Merijn Zeeman

"Bart has made a meteoric development," confirms sportive director Merijn Zeeman. "He only turned professional two years ago and now he's already riding in the Tour. We were impressed by his abilities last year, and this year he has stepped up even more. We believe he can continue to develop, which is why we are happy to extend his contract. He is an excellent climber and has already achieved great results this year in the Tour Down Under, UAE Tour, and Tour of Norway. He is also proving his worth in the Tour by skillfully supporting Jonas Vingegaard." 

Zeeman praises not only Lemmen's physical capabilities: "His personality and maturity are also very strong. He is self-aware, attentive to everything needed to improve, and is a true team player."

Lemmen himself is very pleased with the confidence shown by this early contract extension. "I feel at home in this team. I have only been a professional rider for two years and I am continuing to develop. I have learned a lot this year. It is incredibly insightful to work with riders like Jonas Vingegaard, Matteo Jorgenson, Sepp Kuss, and Wout van Aert. I feel the trust from the team and that means a lot to me. I am very happy to be able to extend my contract by another two years."
