« It was a memorable Vuelta, not only for the team, but also for me. In my career, I had the chance to ride in big teams, like Astana and Katusha. But I have never experienced something similar to these three weeks with Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux. I defended the leader’s red jersey for two stages and then defended our team leader. It was new for me. What we have accomplished together is the result of a massive hard work. The team hired Aike Visbeek as Performance Manager, who established high quality working methods. Our sports director Valerio Piva has worked with the best teams, he has invaluable experience. Together with the riders, we push each other to perform at a higher level. Because we don't have superstars, but we make up for it with hard work and team spirit, and that makes us stronger. »
« Personally, I needed this stage victory because I know what my qualities are. Even today, at 34, I constantly feel the need to prove that I can win in big races. Achieving such success on a regular basis keeps me competitive at the highest level. In recent years, I was always at the front but in races where it's hard to see me on the picture, so you tend to not realize what I'm capable of. Thanks to Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux, I can participate in the most prestigious events on the calendar and show myself. Opportunities like the Giro or the Vuelta this year have enabled me to do that and prove to the world what I can do. »Rein Taaramäe
Created in 2013 with an innovative concept, the Want You Club (WYC) is the business club bringing together partners of Intermarché-Circus-Wanty. Currently presided by Dimitri Bauters, its purpose is to offer the sponsors of the team the opportunity to meet, get to know each other, develop relationships and business together.
The Club meets at least 6 times a year, often before the biggest cycling events of the year (a.e. Liège-Bastogne-Liège, Belgian Championship, Binche-Chimay-Binche) to introduce their business and share company news. Currently, more than 85 companies support us.
Our business club is one of the first of its kind in cycling and we are always looking for opportunities to grow bigger and expand our memberships.
If you are interested to support our cycling team and become member of the business club, don’t hesitate to contact us.
We hope to welcome you soon!
