For the second time in three years, Julien Vermote soloed to a great stage victory at the Tour of Britain, which catapulted him to the top of the standings for several days. It was a well-deserved reward for a rider who always places the team’s goals above his own and gives it his all on the road, just as it happened in October, at the World Team Time Trial Championships.
Julien, who loves fashion and dresses with great style and self-confidence, is a linchpin of the team even though he is still young, and is definitely one to invest in for the future. Born in Kortrijk, he has breathed the air of the classics since he was small. His childhood dream? To win the E3 Prijs Harelbeke, the race held in his hometown.
