Ide Schelling has extended his contract with BORA-hansgrohe for another two years.

The resident of The Hague, who rode a strong Tour de France, is therefore stuck with the German cycling team until the end of 2023.

"I have found my place at BORA-hansgrohe and am therefore very happy that I can extend my contract for another two years," says Schelling on his team's website.

"I have developed a lot over the past two years, which is the result of hard work and a professional environment, but above all individual cooperation."

Schelling, 23, is having an excellent season at BORA-hansgrohe.

At the beginning of June he recorded his first professional victory in the Swiss one-day race GP Kanton Aargau and a few weeks later he made his debut in the Tour de France.

In the Tour de France Schelling immediately showed himself by attacking in the opening stage.

Along the way, he collected the most points for the mountains classification in that stage, making him the first wearer of the polka dot jersey.

He also led the standings from the third to the sixth stage.

After the seventh stage Schelling lost the polka dot jersey to Slovenian Matej Mohoric.

The Dutchman completed his first Tour and finished 119th in the general classification.

In addition to Schelling, the Austrian Patrick Konrad and the Italian Matteo Fabbro also extended their contract with BORA-hansgrohe for two years. They are also fixed until the end of 2023.
