Edward 'Looney' Theuns returned 'home' to Trek-Segafredo for the 2019 season. The Belgian rode with the USA WorldTour team from 2016-2017 but opted to pen a deal with Team Sunweb the following year, which did not work out for team or rider. They mutually agreed to terminate the contract a year early and when Trek-Segafredo offered a spot on the roster, he didn't hesitate. Eddie's homecoming was a happy reunion for both parties. He finished the season with two victories, effectively ending a winless drought of nearly two years. A capable sprinter and adept Classics rider, his amicable nature is a seamless fit in the Trek-Segafredo team.
