Personal Details:

Nationality Belgium
Date of birth 10/11/1995


Classics star and track World Champion Lotte Kopecky, born November 10th, 1995 in Rumst, Belgium, turned professional with the Belgian Continental Topsport-Vlaanderen-Pro-Duo team in 2014. Her first win came two years later, in the low-profile Trofee Maerten Wynants one-day race.
A talented track racer, Kopecky has taken two World Track Championships gold medals in the Madison, in 2017 and again in 2022 and another in the points. Also on the track she has netted various European championships, World Cup and national titles.
In 2020 in the revised late season,  Kopecky won both the Belgian national road race title and, for the second time of four to date in her career, the national time trial. She also netted a stage victory at the Giro d'Italia Donne and podium finishes at Le Samyn des Dames, Gent-Wevelgem, the Tour of Flanders, and Brugge-De Panne.
That string of success was enough for her to move from her longstanding squad, Lotto Soudal Ladies to Liv Racing (formerly CCC-Liv) in a one-year deal for 2021, the first Women’s WorldTeam of her career. That season she once again clinched both the time trial and road titles in the Belgian National Championships.
Kopecky’s biggest success on the road has been in one-day Classics, where in 2022,  racing for her current SDWorx squad, she triumphed on home soil at the Ronde van Vlaanderen as well as in the Strade Bianche in Italy. On top of that in her most stellar year to date Kopecky secured a second place in Paris-Roubaix, and she rounded it out with a silver medal in the World Championships road race.
