Rider profile

Greg Van Avermaet is in his eighth year with BMC Racing Team after an impressive 2017 season saw him prove that he is at the best point in his career and this form continued into 2018 with with the Belgian rider taking his total number of wins up to an incredible 38 over the opening half of this season including a stage win at the Tour of Oman and overall victory at the Tour de Yorkshire.

The Belgian rider, and reigning Olympic champion, kicked off last season in impressive style by taking a second consecutive win at the first Classic of the year, Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. Van Avermaet went on to secure victories at Record Bank E3 Harelbeke and Gent – Wevelgem in Flanders Fields before his dream of winning a Monument came true when he raised his arms to celebrate crossing the finish line first at Paris-Roubaix. His determination to win was evident when he entered the iconic velodrome as part of the leading group, and he didn’t let the opportunity pass him by, sprinting to take the honors in a thrilling finale.

Van Avermaet’s consistently strong performances in 2017 also included two stage wins and the overall victory at the Skoda Tour de Luxembourg plus three hard-fought second places at Strade Bianche, Ronde van Vlaanderen and Grand Prix Cycliste de Québec, were rewarded when he was crowned winner of the 2017 UCI Men’s WorldTour Classification.
