Koen
de Kort

He's an organizer, motivator, and delegator dedicated to helping others win, and Koen de Kort would have it no other way.  Koen 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 and road captain, a role in which he thrives. He is a veteran of 39 Monuments, including 13 editions of Paris-Roubaix and 14 Tours of Flanders, and his depth of knowledge is vital to the Classics team. In his 20-year career, Koen has only one victory but has played a crucial part in some teammates' 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.
