Koen
de
Kort

Koen de Kort joined Trek-Segafredo in 2017 after eight years with Giant-Alpecin, where he was a vital lead-out man and road captain. He showed capacity in his early years, winning the Under-23 Paris-Roubaix and a stage in the 2005 Tour de l'Avenir, but has built a career as a consummate domestique, a role in which he thrives. He is a veteran of 39 Monuments, which includes 13 Paris-Roubaix and 14 Tour of Flanders, and his depth and experience are vital to the classics team. In his 19-year career, Koen has only one victory but has played a big part in some highly memorable wins. Koen's amiable personality and professional approach make him a natural leader - it's not often you'll see him without a smile.
