Lotto Soudal Ladies announced the signing of Jesse Vandenbulcke to their roster for 2020. Vandenbulcke, 23, spent four years with the programme as a novice, junior and first-year elite but left the sport due to back pain in 2016. 

An impressive comeback this summer saw her secure the Belgian road race title while racing for Doltcini-Van Eyck Sport and she hopes to continue that success into 2020 with Lotto Soudal Ladies.
