Florian Vermeersch, the promise of Paris-Roubaix

Florian Vermeersch, the promise of Paris-Roubaix



The surprising name on the 2021 podium of a rain-soaked Paris-Roubaix was certainly young Florian Vermeersch (Lotto Soudal) who took third in his debut in the Hell of the North. 

Before racing this Monument, the 22-year-old Belgian rider twice took part in the Tour of Flanders but never made it to the finish. On Sunday though he was ever-present and did much more than just reach the vélodrome, he survived all the scrimmages and, partly due to the bad luck from Gianni Moscon (Ineos Grenadiers) and partly due to a splendid performance, he was there in Roubaix to sprint for the victory.
