Tormans Cyclo Cross Team can rely on a new sports director at the start of the competition in August. The double cyclocross world champion will mentor the squad, with Quinten Hermans and Corné van Kessel in the elite category. Together with Wellens, the duo was part of Telenet-Fidea during his sportive career.
The 41 year old was world champion in 2003 and 2004. He also won the World Cup, the Superprestige and the Gazet van Antwerpen Trophy (currently the DVV Verzekeringen Trophy). Afterwards, he became a sports director in cyclocross, with 777 and Corendon-Circus. The resident of the Campine region will add his experience to the development of the new UCI cyclocross structure, managed by Jean-François Bourlart and parallel to the UCI Pro Team Circus-Wanty Gobert-Tormans.
