Team Topsport Vlaanderen
Belgian joins home team on two-year deal
Topsport Vlaanderen-Mercator signed Belgian cyclist Grégory Joseph today for the next two seasons, according to SportWereld.
"We consciously opt for more young sprinters in the team," said team manager Walter Planckaert. "These days, more and more races end in a bunch sprint. I think Joseph will increase our strength."
Joseph, 21, finished third in stage four of the Tour de Normandie this year racing for Jong Vlaanderen - Bauknecht. He became a professional in 2007 with Davitamon-Win for Life-Jong Vlaanderen.
Belgium's Topsport Vlaanderen is a Professional Continental or second division team. It competes in most of Belgium's races and relies on wildcard invites to the bigger, international events.
The team won this year with Thomas De Gendt in the Internationale Wielertrofee and Tour de Wallonie stage four, Nikolas Maes in Vuelta a Burgos stage three and Johan Coenen in Omloop van het Waasland - Kemzeke.
