Off the back of a strong performance at the Giro d’Italia, Team DSM are delighted to announce that they have extended their cooperation with Chris Hamilton until the end of 2023.
Since turning professional with the team in 2017, Hamilton has steadily progressed year-by-year, growing as an athlete both on and off the bike. Racing in different tactical roles and regularly an excellent part of the climbing support block, Hamilton is more than happy to take on whatever role is needed at that race to contribute to bringing home the best possible results for the team; which is an incredibly valuable characteristic. Furthermore, when given the role to be the finisher on behalf of the team he has shown his quality and class on the bike, with sixth place on GC at the 2019 Tour Down Under where he also won the white jersey, alongside eighth on GC at the Tour de Pologne that year as well, testament to that. He was an integral member of the team’s solid seventh place finish on GC at this year’s Giro d’Italia, where he also claimed his best result as a pro; a well-fought and richly deserved second place over a testing parcours from the breakaway.
