The 23-year-old will stay with the team until at least the end of 2023 as he extended his contract with two more years.
Brent Van Moer resigned at the Critérium du Dauphine, where he took his first professional victory, taking the opening stage & yellow jersey. Van Moer is only 23 years old but not a unfamiliar face at Lotto Soudal. In June 2019, the young Belgian turned pro from the Lotto Soudal U23 team.
Brent Van Moer:
“I received a nice offer and didn’t need much time to think about it, despite several other teams being interested.” says Brent Van Moer. “I feel really good within the team, have an excellent relationship with all of my teammates and also with the team staff. I love to be on the races with this group. And maybe even more important, at Lotto Soudal I get the chance to develop into a really strong rider. I can also still explore where the best of my abilities are. At the shorter stage races? Or at the Classics? Next year, I already want to fight for the victory at the semi-classics. I am really ambitious.”
General Manager John Lelangue:
“Brent is the perfect example of a rider who is trained at Lotto Soudal and keeps making progress. Into a winner. And there are also others like Brent in the team. And we keep on following the road we’ve chosen. The young guys are our future. Already in March, after Brent’s second place in a Tirreno-Adriatico stage, several other teams were interested. Brent would make an excellent domestique. At Lotto Soudal however, he gets more opportunities. We absolutely believe in Brent and vice versa.”
