Jelle Vanendert (born 19 February 1985) is a Belgian professional road racing cyclist for Lotto–Soudal in the UCI World Tour. His younger brother Dennis Vanendert also competed professionally with the Lotto–Soudal team between 2012 and 2015.

Career[edit]

In 2011, Vanendert showed good form at La Flèche Wallonne, where he came sixth. He rode the 2011 Tour de France initially as the main climbing domestique for Jurgen Van den Broeck. However, when his leader crashed out of the race, Vanendert was given a free role, and on Stage 14 attacked from the group of GC contenders to win the stage. Vanendert finished 20th overall and also wore the King of the Mountains Jersey.

Vanendert was the leader of Lotto–Belisol in the 2012 Ardennes classics, and finished second in the Amstel Gold Race, fourth in La Flèche Wallonne and tenth in Liège–Bastogne–Liège.
