Biniam Girmay put in one of the most scintillating performances of the UCI Road World Championships in Flanders last September when he burst out of the pack and passed a dozen riders in the final 200 metres to take second in the U23 men's race behind solo attacker Filippo Baroncini. 

The ride was no surprise, after Girmay parlayed a mid-season transfer to Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux and quickly paid off the WorldTour team with a win in the Classic Grand Besançon Doubs and a podium in Tour du Doubs.
