Koen De Kort joined Trek-Segafredo in 2017 after eight years with Giant-Alpecin where he was a vital lead-out man. 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 an invaluable teammate and road captain, a role in which he thrives. He is a veteran of 13 Paris-Roubaix and 14 Tour of Flanders and his depth and experience is vital to the classics team. Since 2012, he has been John Degenkolb's lieutenant, closing gaps, positioning, and leading out 'Dege' in the sprints.
