Immediate success for Jorgenson in his first stage race of the season

Matteo Jorgenson kicked off the season with a bang at the Tour of Oman. The 24-year-old American emerged as the strongest in the third stage, winning ahead of Mauri Vansevenant from Soudal-Quick Step. In the final stage, the Belgian was the fastest, but Jorgenson secured the overall victory with a slim margin of just one second.

After a strong start to the season, Jorgenson set his sights on the spring races. The opening weekend, however, turned out to be a disappointment: Jorgenson finished 18th in the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and 65th in Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne. In Paris-Nice, his second stage race of the season, things went much better. The young American placed in the top twelve in four stages and finished eighth in the general classification, more than three minutes behind winner Tadej Pogacar.

Jorgenson then refocused on the classics, where he made a notable impact. The Movistar rider finished fourth in the E3 Saxo Classic, just under half a minute behind the top trio of Pogacar, Van Aert, and Van der Poel. Van Aert ultimately won after a powerful sprint but had to concede victory in the Tour of Flanders to Pogacar. In Vlaanderens Mooiste, Jorgenson also secured a top-ten finish, coming in ninth. His versatility had already attracted significant interest, with teams like INEOS-Grenadiers, Soudal Quick-Step, and UAE Team Emirates keen to sign the all-rounder.

Battle with Woods on the Puy de Dôme

The American's consistent season continued in the Tour de Romandie. Jorgenson clocked the second-fastest time in the mountain time trial on the third stage, just five seconds behind Juan Ayuso, a position he also held in the final general classification after a strong fifth place in the queen stage. The American finished just nineteen seconds behind the British rider Adam Yates, but managed to take home the young rider's jersey.

After an unremarkable Dauphiné, Jorgenson rode the Tour de France just like the previous year. In his third grand tour, he focused on stage wins, coming close twice in breakaways. In the grueling stage to the Puy de Dôme, he engaged in a thrilling duel with Michael Woods. Jorgenson was in contention for a prestigious WorldTour victory, but in the final kilometers, Canadian stage winner Pierre Latour and Matej Mohoric overtook the Movistar rider. Three stages later, he was bested by stage winner Ion Izagirre and runner-up Mathieu Burgaudeau. Unfortunately, he was unable to complete La Grande Boucle due to a muscle tear sustained in a crash, forcing him to withdraw after the second rest day. After the Tour, Jorgenson competed in a few smaller races, achieving modest results.

In late August, Jumbo-Visma outmaneuvered everyone to sign the talented American. Jorgenson inked a three-year contract with the Dutch WorldTour team.
