In 2015, Stijn was one of the pillars of the team in the northern classics. Born in Oudenaarde, in the heart of Flanders, Stijn is a great athlete and a nice guy who can instill calm and confidence in the entire group. His influence can be seen in almost all of Boonen’s greatest victories, but in the past years he proved that he can be a contender for the win as well, Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, E3 Harelbeke, or the Tour of Flanders being some of the one-day races in the finale of which he was an important protagonist.
The father of a beautiful daughter born the night before the 2014 edition of Omloop, Stijn is ready to place himself at the service of Tom Boonen and the other team leaders again, knowing that when the opportunity will arise, he won’t hesitate to go for the win, helped by his impressive “engine”. His adversaries can consider themselves warned!
