Mauri's biography

Son of former professional rider Wim Vansevenant, 21-year-old Mauri – who is named after 1991 Vuelta a España winner Melcior Mauri – started riding at the age of 12, and after a couple of years in cyclo-cross he made the transition to road cycling, where he turned heads in 2019 after becoming the first Belgian in 36 years to win the Giro della Valle d’Aosta, arguably the toughest U23 race on the calendar, following a remarkable consistency and show of strength on the climbs.

Having completed his studies in Electromechanics at the beginning of the summer, Mauri joined our squad with a high degree of confidence and ambition and he didn’t waste any time when it came to showing his quality, only a late crash while in the lead depriving him from a chance of fighting for victory at Flèche Wallonne, where he spent close to 200 kilometers in the break.

“It is fantastic to wear the Deceuninck – Quick-Step jersey! It’s a big team, one of the best there is, and I am hoping that I can progress with the Wolfpack, learn, prove my worth and have a beautiful future. My first months with the team have already been incredible and I’m looking forward to more in 2021!”
