The 28-year-old Belgian stays with the Wolfpack for two more years.
Bert Van Lerberghe became a member of Deceuninck – Quick-Step in 2020 and has now added two more years to his deal, which will see him ride with the Wolfpack until at least the end of 2023. A pro since 2015, Van Lerberghe took several strong results during his spell with the most successful team in the world, including top 10 finishes at Driedaagse Brugge-De Panne and Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne.
“I’m super happy. It’s a nice feeling that Patrick and the team showed me their confidence, which I am motivated to repay. I feel so good with the Wolfpack, so this was a logical decision for me. I hope I can still make some progress in the coming years, to become better and continue to try to do a good job. During the past two seasons I learned a lot, the team really became a second family for me and I have enjoyed the experience so far. I’m looking forward to continuing my story with the Wolfpack.”
CEO Patrick Lefevere shared the happiness of this new deal, which sees the team continue to build on a solid squad for the next few years. “Bert is a really strong rider and put on display his fantastic work and selfless effort on many occasions. With him we have a very good rider for the lead-outs, but he can also go for some personal results whenever possible. He is still very keen to learn and improve his skills, and we are happy to continue helping him progress in the future.”
