European Champion Fleur Moors to race for Lidl-Trek through 2025

A double celebration for Fleur as she turns 18 today!

Lidl-Trek is thrilled to announce the addition of Fleur Moors, the newly crowned European junior road race champion, to its roster on a two-year contract. Following in the footsteps of esteemed Lidl-Trek riders Lucinda Brand, Shirin van Anrooij, and Thibau Nys, Fleur will apply her remarkable talents to both road and cyclocross racing, representing Baloise Trek Lions in the latter.

Fleur’s arrival at Lidl-Trek comes off the back of a hugely successful season. After starting the year by claiming the Belgian cyclocross title, Fleur went on to finish fourth in the Ronde van Vlaanderen, before a hard-fought bronze medal at the World Championship road race in Glasgow. The zenith of the young Belgian’s season came at the end of September, when she won the European road race title. With a clear natural talent, Fleur has entrusted the next pivotal stage of her development to Lidl-Trek.

Reflecting on her successful year, Fleur said, “I can look back on my season in a good manner and the European title was the cherry on top. I am very happy to finish my road season this way. Continuing to grow within Lidl-Trek is something I’m very much looking forward to. I am convinced that I will learn a lot among such good cyclists. The first year as a U23 rider is always a difficult one because it is a big step between the junior and U23 category. It will be hard to stand my ground in such a strong field, but the European jersey will give me extra confidence to make the best of it.

“Lidl-Trek is a team I’ve always looked up to and to be part of it is a dream come true. The combination of Lidl-Trek and Baloise Trek Lions really appealed to me, as I really like both cross and road cycling, and they will support me in the best way possible for both those disciplines. Of course, seeing my new teammates successfully manage both disciplines helped with my decision. I love doing the combination of cyclocross and road cycling. Shirin, Lucinda and Thibau are the perfect example within the team that this can be done perfectly well.”

Ina-Yoko Teutenberg, Lidl-Trek Sports Director, added, “As with all of our new young riders, our priority with Fleur is to not rush her development. She is just turning 18 in a sport which doesn’t have an easy step between the junior ranks and pros, so we will be extra attentive to provide a warm atmosphere to help Fleur on the road to become a professional, both on and off the bike. Her bronze medal at Worlds and gold at Euros – both on hard courses – show that she is an exciting talent, and it will be a pleasure to help her continue to improve. Clearly, Fleur enjoys mixing road racing and cyclocross, which we are happy to see her continue alongside Lucinda and Shirin.”
