Of the Nut is, there are already some great credentials as possible. For example, has the power to Belgian beloftekampioen time trial last year and the silver medal at the U23 world championships against the clock in a Day. In the classic work, Of the Nut is noted, with the following results. As he was last year’s runner-up in the Omloop het Nieuwsblad for the future, as a race, as the junior has already won. Like in 2018 and beyond, the 21-year-old Belgian, in spite of adversity, in the day – this year, the sixth in the belofteversie of the Paris-Roubaix. Of the Nut and looks at it, of course, very much looking forward to the world tour-team has to say.

Brent Nut: “of Course, it is exciting to get to be a pro to be. However, Lotto Soudal, is now a trusted environment, and I will be there are a lot of Belgian riders have to face. Also, I know some of the guys that I worked with within the belofteploeg.”

“My strengths are is in the time trials and the classics. Lotto Soudal is the perfect environment for myself to further develop. Especially in the area of the time trial, I was in the national team many times, along with Kevin De Weert, the netherlands. Therefore, it is good to know that he was with the Lotto Soudal to work as a team. Of course, I hope to have a lot to learn from a world champions-against-the-clock, such as the Victor Campenaerts. In the classics, I could learn from great riders, including Tiesj Benoot and Tim Wellens. In the future, races like Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders, for me, are due to the lastigheidsgraad of them and my driving force.”

“On the tijdritvlak will of course have to wait and see how smoothly things are going. On the promises, I was able to perform at the highest level, but in the pros, that is just that little bit different. I am hoping to get to the time trial, but I want to be sure to have the classics in the background, slide the work against the clock. During the first few years as a pro, I want to have a taste of everything.”

“My first race for Lotto Soudal, is the “Hammer” Series in the region of Limburg. I don’t know what I should expect, but in the end it mostly boils down to in order to learn as much as possible of the “big boys”. At the Baloise Belgium Tour, particularly when it comes to trial, it will be interesting to me to even have to compete with top talents such as Victor Campenaerts. I will soon know how much work I have ahead of me.”
