Jürgen Roelandts (born 2 July 1985) is a Belgian road bicycle racer, who currently rides for UCI WorldTeam Movistar Team.[3]

Career[edit]

In 2013, he achieved a very prestigious placing, finishing third in the Tour of Flanders. In the 2015 Gent–Wevelgem, after being in a solo breakaway for 50 kilometres (31 miles) in difficult weather conditions, Roelandts got passed by the group of chasers with 20 kilometres (12 miles) to go but managed to resist to the return of the peloton, finishing seventh.[4] In June 2015, Roelandts came in second place at the Belgian National Road Race Championships, losing out after a two-man break with Preben Van Hecke.[5] He was named in the start list for the 2016 Giro d'Italia.[6]
