The 27-year-old Arjen Livyns has signed a two-year contract with Lotto Dstny. He will reinforce the Classics squad within the Belgian WorldTour team and be able to go in breakaways. “I am very motivated to show myself.”

Arjen Livyns has made a name as an offensive rider who is able to do well in the Flemish Classics. “I am very happy to be getting an opportunity to sign for a big team like Lotto Dstny, after 5 years in pro cycling”, says Arjen Livyns. “I am very much looking forward to take part in all the big races with a team that fights for victory: with a clear division of roles, a plan and in a professional environment.”

The Belgian rider from Harelbeke will reinforce the Classics team and be able to show himself in breakaways. “I want to earn my spot in the Classics team as soon as possible”, comments Arjen Livyns. “I call the Flemish Classics home and they suit me well. I would like to improve yet again on that terrain. Next to that, I am an allrounder: I can go a long way uphill and am not afraid to get into the mix in the build-up to the sprint. I am grateful to my current team for all the chances they have given me. But I am also very satisfied to be able to prove myself on a higher level during the years where I will reach my top level.”

Lotto Soudal CEO John Lelangue welcomes Arjen Livyns to the team. “He has proven to be able to go a long way in the Flemish Classics. Arjen Livyns has an offensive spirit, which is very important to us. During the next years, he will reach the top of his physical capacities. I am convinced that we can help him achieve an even higher level and we will live great moments together.”
