Julien Vermote (born 26 July 1989) is a Belgian professional cyclist for Team Dimension Data.[2] He lives in Stasegem, outside Harelbeke.[3] His brother is Alphonse Vermote, who rode for the An Post–Chain Reaction squad. He was named in the start list for the 2015 Tour de France.[4]

Juniors[edit]

Born in Kortrijk, Belgium, Vermote started racing at a young age and joined the KSV Deerlijk team in 2002 and stayed on that team for the rest of his junior career. He was the national champion in the novice category in 2004.[5] Going through the years, Vermote had results on all levels and his time trialling skills started to develop with multiple wins in the discipline. In his final year in the junior ranks, he won 10 races including Ledegem-Kemmel-Ledegem and a 2nd place in the junior's Ronde van Vlaanderen.

Beveren 2000/Under-23[edit]

In his first year in the Under-23 ranks, Vermote came up with a huge win in the time trial in the Le Tryptique des Monts et Chateaux over multiple strong time trialists in Jan Bakelants and Jan Ghyselinck.

In his 2nd year in the Under-23 ranks, Vermote kept pulling very strong results. He shocked the field in the Under-23 Belgian Time Trial Championships with beating defending champion Ghyselinck (who finished in 4th) and won by 23 seconds. He had another strong time trialing result with winning the stage 2 time trial in the Tour du Haut Anjou beating Under-23 stalwarts Tejay van Garderen and Marcel Kittel. He hung on for 2nd place overall in the stage race just 4 seconds behind van Garderen.

2010 was a solid year for Vermote though in some peoples eyes, not as strong as his previous U-23 years. He had multiple strong results in big Under-23 races such as the Ronde Van Vlaanderen Beloften (12th), La Cote de Picardie (4th) and Triptyque des Monts et Chateaux (7th overall) though he had one great win in Brussel-Opwijk, breaking away solo and winning alone. Vermote signed with Quick Step for one year and a 1-year option in the late summer of 2010.

Private life[edit]

Remote is Roman Catholic and gave testimonial in different Schools, he says the rosary gives him strengths during his career as sportsman.[6]
