Three World Championship medals. Never have the UCI Worlds been so fertile for Ridley. A silver medal for Brent Van Moer’s Dean FAST in the U23 ITT on Monday and another silver for Bjorg Lambrecht’s Helium SLX in the U23 road race on Friday. But the cherry on the pie was Victor Campenaerts’ Belgian Blue bullet time with his Dean FAST on Wednesday. […]
Choosing the right escape. Attacking. Don’t look back. This is Thomas De Gendt. De Gendt isn’t just an ordinary cyclist. He’s anatypical rider without attitude who rather prefers to attack than to hide in the peloton’s belly. Doing the lead-out for Greipel’s sprint? Too much wriggling. Warming up for a time trial? He doesn’t believe […]
A flat stage with a traditional scenario. The La Vuelta 18th stage from Ejea de los Caballeros to Lleida was an excellent opportunity for sprinters to show their fast legs after the hills of the last exhausting days.

With 3 medals at the European championships, Ridley bikes can talk about a successful European campaign, taking a medal in three different cycling disciplines.

The Belgian nationals have offered a second Belgian title for the Lotto Soudal team. Three days after the victory of Victor Campenaerts in the ITT, Annelies Dom has won the female road race on her Liz SL. The Lotto Soudal Ladies were almost all day in control, which resulted in a first and second spot […]
Victor Campenaerts has won the Belgian ITT nationals. The race was expected to become a battle between European champion Victor Campenaerts and reigning Belgian champion Yves Lampaert (Quick-Step Floors). The 43,2 kilometer long track suited Campenaerts very well and he managed to keep his competitor on 20 seconds. But Thomas De Gendt almost surprised everyone. […]
Despite being a neopro, the young talented rider of Lotto Soudal wanted to test his capabilities during the Tour des Fjords. On the last hill of the race he was able to show his explosiveness. “For me this victory is a dream coming true”, said an amused Lambrecht.
German Lotto Soudal sprinter André Greipel has won the second stage of the Baloise Belgium Tour, after he did the same job yesterday in the bunch sprint. He was again the fasted of the whole peloton and will keep the leader’s jersey around his shoulders in time trial of tomorrow.
