Serge Baguet retired from racing in September at the age of 38, but the former Quick.Step-Innergetic rider may not be leaving cycling entirely. Baguet may become the second Directeur Sportif at Mitsubishi-Jartazi, a Belgian Continental team, reports Sporza.
The team manager at the team is Jef Braeckevelt, who previously worked with Baguet at Lotto. "The position of second DS is not a full-time job," Braeckevelt noted. "But because we very often ride a double programme, he would be very welcome."
Baguet's last race was the Grote Prijs Briek Schotte. He rode for Team Lotto from 1991 to 1995, and for Vlaanderen 2002 in 1996. He did not compete from 1997 to 1999, but returned to Lotto in 2000, where Braeckevelt gave him a second chance. He joined Quick.Step this season.
