Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux is ready to start the 2021 season

Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux will start the 2021 season, its first in the UCI World Tour, with a core of 29 riders. The full roster of Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux for the 2021 season consists of 10 different nationalities and displays a balanced mix of highly experienced leaders and road captains as well as young talents. Despite its new status, the team remained faithful to its fundamental principles, offering a platform for nine Belgian talents while internationalizing its squad.

This winter, the team welcomed nine new signings : Jan Hirt , Jonas Koch, Louis Meintjes, Riccardo Minali, Baptiste Planckaert, Lorenzo Rota, Rein Taaramaë, Taco Van Der Hoorn and Georg Zimmermann. With these additions, the team further enhanced its global reputation by snatching riders regarded as the most prominent figures in their respective countries and impressive pedigree of achievements in sprint finishes, classics and Grand Tours.

Supported by its faithful partners and new brands, the World Team offers an opportunity for cyclocrossmen to express themselves on the road, with Quinten Hermans (BEL) and Corné Van Kessel (NED) sharing their trade between Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux and Tormans Cyclo Cross Team for a second consecutive season. The fruitful partnership with local French club CC Etupes is also honored with the presence of Jérémy Bellicaud (FRA) and Théo Delacroix (FRA), who are also the youngest members of the squad.

Jean-François Bourlart (General Manager):
« When composing our effective for 2021 we opted for stability by building on our current team and reinforcing it. We understand that it is our first year in the World Tour, but we intend to play a role throughout the whole season, in the classics as well as the Grand Tours. That is why we complemented the group with riders who offer new profiles compared to the ones we previously had, with the likes of Louis Meintjes, Jan Hirt, Rein Taaramaë and Georg Zimmermann who are highly motivated to chase the overall classifications. »

« We have definitely raised the level in every aspect of organization, starting with our training camp. We planned workshops meetings for riders, we allowed partners joining us in order to take on board the remarks so that the equipment fully suit the rider's needs and we have gathered a lot of information through our trainers' analysis. The quality of training is high, I can feel we are all set for our first season in the World Tour, starting next weekend at La Marseillaise. »
