Serge Pauwels



Serge is a really strong tour rider who climbs well and rides strongly in the time trial too. His skill set is an important part to the teams success in the team time trial discipline as well as being the right hand man to the teams GC riders if he is not the designated leader himself. In 2016 Serge cam 2nd on stage 12 of the Tour de France, which finished on the iconic Mt. Ventoux.

The experience Serge has gained in this role makes him the perfect rider to support our young African riders like Mekseb Debesay and Merhawi Kudus in their quest for some top GC results. Serge already has 9 grand tours under his belt and to have a rider of his caliber still on our team to assist in the success of young African riders is a major coupe for our team.
