Meet the Professionals
Our 5 Road Cycling Tours are hosted by professional cyclists from team Lotto Soudal
Thank you for the wonderful week in the Algarve. I have been telling all my friends what a great time it was and I'll definitely come back.
Jens is a new breed of Belgian rider, who started to perform at a young age by taking the title of Belgian Junior National and winning the tour of Flanders in 2007.
Lotto Soudal took him under their wing to kickstart his professional career and in 2003 he proved his value to the sponsors by taking his first professional victory in winning the championship of Flander Koolskamp.
He continued to deliver that season by winning the EuroMetropole Tour and the Sluitingsprijs Putte-Kapellen.
After taking the sprint finish from Tom Boonen in 2013 he was awarded the title of Belgian Champion and in 2014 took 1st place in the National Road Race Championships
More recently, Jens took 1st place in 4 events, and was placed among the Top 10 in 12 race events during 2015.
Jürgen was one of the biggest professional starters in his first year showing fantastic performance with no opponent getting in his way. The following season he suffered some bad luck but still managed to win the Ghent-Wevelgem and the world championship in Copenhagen.
Since 2013 he has been riding for the Lotto Soudal team and is showing good shape, having won a stage in the Tour Mediterranean and after riding an impressive tour of Flanders in spring 2013, when he took 3rd place.
In June 2015, Roelandts came in second place at the National Road Race Championships and finished within the Top 10 in 6 events.
