Lotto Soudal has announced that former professional rider Nikolas Maes is set to join the team of directors of the team.

Two weeks ago the Belgian announced his retirement as a professional rider after a 14-year career. The former rider -who was part of teams like the currently known as Deceuninck-Quick-Step and Lotto Soudal- will join the team of directors of the Belgian formation with a very specific schedule.

"I am already preparing for my second career in the construction and real estate industry but I cannot pass up the opportunity to lend a hand to Lotto Soudal," explained Maes. "Cycling is and will always be my passion."

"The classics are my field. The team is counting on my experience, but I am also looking forward to integrating all those many young, new and youthful talents into the team. This is a project that I like to put my shoulders under. 2021 will be very instructive year for me."

"We love not to waste the expertise we have in-house," continues John Lelangue, General Manager of Lotto Soudal. "We are continuing what we started last year with Maxime Monfort, our new Performance Manager. Nikolas will be deployed in the spring and will take care of the youth in the team. He has plenty of experience and knows the house like the back of his hand. Over the past four seasons, Nikolas has shown himself to be an indispensable link at Lotto Soudal during the spring classics."
