Swiss Kevin Kuhn (24) and Belgian Gerben Kuypers (23) signed their first pro contract within the structure of Jean-François Bourlart.
Both cyclocross specialists will spend their winters in the cyclocross project of Intermarché-Circus-Wanty, which is actively searching for new title partners, and combine this with road campaigns in the colors of Circus-ReUz-Technord, the new Continental Development Team under the direction of Kevin Van Melsen.
After three seasons under guidance of Bart and Geert Wellens, Kevin Kuhn extended his contract with the structure until February 2025. With his third place in Val Di Sole, he is the first rider in nine years to represent Switzerland on a World Cup podium. Kuhn became a fixed value in the top ten and concluded the World Cups in seventh place in the overall ranking, in addition to his four victories on home soil. In the spring, Kuhn will wear the colors of the Belgian structure for the first time on the road with Circus-ReUz-Technord.
Gerben Kuypers, one of the rising stars of Belgian cyclocross, will join the project until at least the end of 2025. After promising results in the youth categories, he made a strong impression during his first winter in the elite category this season, with a victory in the Exact Cross in Essen and five other wins in the French Cup. During the past month he finished three times in the top ten of World Cup races and took fifth place in the Belgian championship, conquering the title in the non pro category. The Belgian rider, who celebrated his 23rd birthday on Wednesday 1st of February, will finish the cyclocross season before showing his new colors on the road with Circus-ReUz-Technord.
