Category: Cycling

Kevin Seeldraeyers has now signed a one-year contract with the Wanty-Gobert Group. The Belgian Professional Continental squad hopes that he will play a leadership role in the team and help secure a wild card invitation to a Grand Tour in 2014.

Seeldraeyers rode for Astana in 2012 and 2013. He has earlier raced for Omega Pharma.

"We will build a core around Kevin Seeldraeyers," said Wanty-Gobert Group's team manager Jean–François Bourlart.

"Laurens De Vreese can be useful in this sense. He is a perfect reinforcement for the finale of the Ardennes Classics. With Kevin Seeldraeyers we’ll have more of a Belgian feel to the team. Nico Sijmens, Björn Leukemans, Veuchelen Frederick and Jan Ghyselinck have already signed up for next season. We have 19 riders under contract so far.”
