Tim Merlier

Tim Merlier is widely regarded as one of the fastest men in the peloton and a world-class sprinter. After joining the team back in 2019 things went fast for this Flemish boy who prefers to talk with the pedals. Tim was our first rider to get a stage win in two Grand Tours and by doing so he gave us memories for a lifetime. In June 2022 he took his second Belgian title, shortly after shortly after recovering from a nasty flesh wound he sustained in Paris-Roubaix.
