The Lotto Dstny Development Team strengthens its formation for 2024 with Daniil Yakovlev. The 18-year-old Ukrainian, living in Belgium, could celebrate this year in the Mémorial Antoine Demoitié and the time trial in the French stage race Penn Ar Bed. In August he crowned himself as World Champion omnium on the track. In addition to the twelve newcomers, Axel De Lie, Joshua Giddings, Robin Orins and Lorenz Van De Wynkele will keep on riding for the Devo Team next year.

Also the current group of sports directors will receive extra support from Alfdan De Decker. Alfdan is Tijl's brother and has years of experience in the sport by being an active cyclist himself. The team is happy to welcome Alfdan.

"For years, we have focused on young talent. With twelve riders coming over from the juniors, we fully took that card for 2024. The young riders come from a very talented group, with Jarno Widar, Steffen De Schuyteneer and Matys Grisel to name a few. We are ready to help them take the next step in their development," said sports manager Kurt Van de Wouwer.

The Lotto Dstny Development Team 2024: Jarno Widar, Kamiel Eeman, Victor Vaneeckhoutte, Steffen De Schuyteneer, Milan Donie, Matys Grisel, Mauro Cuylits, Milan De Ceuster, Tars Poelvoorde, Liam Van Bylen, Thomas Vuerinckx, Daniil Yakovlev, Axel De Lie, Joshua Giddings, Robin Orins and Lorenz Van de Wynkele.
