Biography

The 21-year-old from Meldert comes from our development team, where he enjoyed a strong 2023 season, winning Gent-Wevelgem, the GiroNextGen stage to Cherasco from the breakaway and Ruota d’Oro, another important race on the Italian amateur calendar. In addition to these, Gil finished runner-up in Paris-Roubaix, concluded just outside the podium at National ITT Championships and took a solid seventh at Liège-Bastogne-Liège – results that speak volumes about his talent and versatility.

Having signed a two-year contract with Soudal Quick-Step, Gil is determined to show what he is capable of while continuing his progression in an environment that knows how to develop young riders: “Turning pro at this age is a dream, and to do it in a team with a lot of history and such heritage is just extra special. My first pro year will be more about helping the leaders, and I can’t wait to give everything for the riders here, some of the best in the world.”
