Rider profile

Golden Greg! There’s no other way describe Greg Van Avermaet after he stormed to victory at the 2016 Rio Olympic Road Race in spectacular fashion. 2016 was the year for the Belgian rider, after many near misses in previous season.

Van Avermaet kicked things off with a win at the first Classic of the year Omloop Het Nieuwslblad before going on to claim two stages, including the Team Time Trial, and the overall victory at Tirreno-Adriatico. Van Avermaet went from strength to strength when he claimed stage 5 of the Tour de France and took the leader’s yellow jersey in the process, a jersey he would wear for three stages.

Van Avermaet’s determination was on show in Rio where, despite not going in as a favorite, he triumphed and crossed the line to take the most memorable win of his season. The victories didn’t stop there with Van Avermaet taking second place at GP Cycliste de Quebec and going one better to claim the win two days later at GP Cycliste de Montreal.

Van Avermaet is at the best point in his career and his sights are set on winning a Monument in 2017, to add to his impressive 27 career wins.
