Even more good news: following Lennert Van Eetvelt's extension last week, Maxim Van Gils has now also prolonged his stay with Lotto Dstny, until 2026. Van Gils has been riding for the team since 2018, making the transition from the young development team to the pro peloton in 2021. "Lotto Dstny feels like my second home”, a happy Maxim Van Gils explains. "I always look forward to heading back to the races to see my teammates and staff again. I've been here for over five years now, and everyone has become like family." 

Van Gils has started the year exceptionally strong. Since the beginning of the season, he hasn't finished outside the top seven, with a third-place finish at the Strade Bianche, a victory in the time trial at the Ruta del Sol, and a seventh place in Milano-Sanremo last weekend as highlights. "The Ardennes classics are coming up soon, and I hope to perform well there too. It would be great if I could continue to raise my level over the next two years and help Lotto Dstny return to the World Tour." 

Lotto Dstny’s CEO Stéphane Heulot is delighted that Van Gils has re-signed. "After Lennert Van Eetvelt, Maxim Van Gils also staying with Lotto Dstny for the next two years pleases us. We have strong belief in Maxim and his chances to continue shining in races. He can further grow with us and continue developing his talent."
