Lotto Soudal receives young Australian Jarrad Dreamers

Lotto Soudal has strengthened with the Grad Dreamers. The 22-year-old Australian from Adelaide is leaving the Hagens Bermann Axion team. The Belgian cycling team reported it on Wednesday. The Drizners, double U23 national champion (2020 road stage, 2019 review), signed a two-year contract.

I still can’t believe it. “I’m really looking forward to it, but I’m also a little nervous,” says Jared Dreezners. “I wasn’t expecting that at all because 2021 wasn’t my best season. Fortunately, I have been able to impress Lotto Soudal in recent months. Since the Tour de l’Avenir, I have been riding at a high level. I finished fourth in the final classification of the Tour. Tomorrow Tour, and ten days ago, I was caught just 50 meters from the finish in Liège-Bastogne-Liège, which means that I missed a place on the podium. It was a truly heartbreaking moment. “

“Jarad is a good backup in the show as he excels in short climbs, fan sprints and sprints,” said John Lelang, general manager of Lotto Soudal. “He’s a big engine racer who loves Belgian races. He’s definitely not the climber type, but could play a key role in Caleb Ewan’s qualifications. In addition, he can also take the course himself. I would like to compare him to pilots like Brent Van Meyer or Harry Sweeney. With Jarrad, a lot of potential will be added to the team.

Before preparing for his first year with Lotto Soudal, the Drizners will close the current season in France on the Circuit des Ardennes, from October 7 to 10.
