French U23 champion Alexy Faure-Prost will step up to the World Tour from 2024 with Intermarché-Circus-Wanty. The talented 19 year old climber is the third rider of Circus-ReUz-Technord to be promoted to the Walloon World Team.
After Francesco Busatto and Roel van Sintmaartensdijk, Alexy Faure-Prost will be the third talent of the Continental Development team directed by Kévin Van Melsen to join the professional peloton in 2024 with Intermarché-Circus-Wanty. The French U23 champion signed a contract until the end of 2026 with the Belgian World Team.
From his season start he won the GP Raygeo in Villers-le-Temple before taking another solo win on his preferred terrain in the Ardennes in the Get Up Cup, ahead of his teammate Busatto.
Then, in support of Francesco Busatto, he had a major influence on hilly races such as Liège-Bastogne-Liège U23, Circuit des Ardennes or La Flèche Ardennaise. In May he discovered the high mountains in the Mercan’Tour Classic (22nd), his first race pro race.
During the summer, he confirmed that he was among the best climbers of his generation, with his impressive second place on top of the Passo dello Stelvio and best young rider’s jersey in the Giro Next Gen (5th), his second place overall in the Giro della Valle d’Aosta and twentieth place in the Tour de l’Ain with Intermarché-Circus-Wanty.
In August, the talented climber became French champion on the hilly parcours of Pledran, one of his three victories with Circus-ReUz-Technord and this in his first season in the U23 category in 2023.
