Greg van Avermaet - Scores by Season Tweet
Greg Van Avermaet (born 17 May 1985) is a Belgian professional road bicycle racer, currently riding for UCI WorldTeam BMC Racing Team. He won the men's individual road race event at the 2016 Summer Olympics, and is the current world number one on both the UCI World Ranking and UCI World Tour since April 2017.
Apart from winning the Olympic title, other notable achievements include Paris–Roubaix, Gent–Wevelgem and E3 Harelbeke in 2017, the 2016 GP de Montréal and Tirreno–Adriatico, the 2016 and 2017 Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, two individual stage wins in the Tour de France, the points classification and a stage win in the Vuelta a España and several podium finishes in one-day classics.
Considered one of the most versatile riders of modern cycling, Van Avermaet is a specialist of the classic cycle races, but has also won stages and the general classification in stage races, particularly when run on a hilly terrain. His strong sprint finish enables him to win sprints of small lead groups, but he has also won races after solo breakaways and has worn the yellow jersey in the 2016 Tour de France.
