We’ve got exciting news from across the pond from our Belgian counterparts. They’ve assembled a stellar group of 20 cyclocross riders for the Cycling Team Mahieu-Kona-Vandermeeren. Managed by Bart Vandecasteele, Mahieu-Kona-Vandermeeren acts as a professional development program across six different CX categories. The mission of the team is to focus on the development of young riders by professional mentors with a wealth of experience in racing and team dynamics. Members include elite riders Jonas Degroote and Joyce Vanderbeken and up and coming juniors Jelle Vermoote and Joran Wyseure. The team will be riding Major Jake and Super Jakes as they tackle races all around Europe including several World Cup events. Collectively in 2017, the riders won 96 races, so we’re excited to see what 2018 has in store.

The Cycling Team Mahieu-Kona-Vandermeeren recently competed in Belgian CX Nationals and had a strong performance, including two top 10 finishes.
