Pieter Serry inks new contract with Deceuninck – Quick-Step

Monday 12 August 2019 - 11:40

The 30-year-old Belgian will remain with the team until the end of the 2021 season.

After joining Deceuninck – Quick-Step in 2013, Pieter Serry has proved himself a valuable member of the squad, often seen on the front of the peloton working hard for his teammates, nowhere more so than in the ten Grand Tours that he has raced. As well as giving his all in the service of his teammates, Serry also notched up several impressive results, most recent of which came at this year’s gruelling Giro d’Italia, where he put himself in a couple of breakaways and finished twice in the top 10.

“I have been riding with the team for seven years now and it feels like having a second family with the whole squad – the riders, staff and sponsors. It’s really great to work with such a nice and tight-knit group. When we are fighting, we are fighting together and we push ourselves to a higher limit, always going for the best possible result. I am proud to be a member of the Wolfpack and want to thank everyone for the confidence they have shown in me. I will be looking to repaying them in the next two years”, Pieter said after putting pen to paper.

Equally happy with Serry’s two-year contract extension was Deceuninck – Quick-Step CEO Patrick Lefevere: “Pieter is another rider that it was extremely important to come to an agreement with and I am delighted that he has signed a new deal. He is always working very hard for the team, everybody can see that and how he always shows his strength and mentality be it small or big races, and he is a very loyal team member, so we are looking forward to two more strong and beautiful years together.”
