Lotto-Soudal has confirmed the signing of Adam Blythe. The British is returning to the Belgian team where started riding in the WorldTour.

The rider will return to the WorldTour after spending one-year at Aqua Blue Sport. "At the age of twenty, I did an internship at Lotto Soudal, Omega Pharma-Lotto back then, and was able to join the WorldTour team afterwards," the rider remembered. "I’m really excited to return to the Belgian team and it’s definitely a real privilege to be racing for this renowned cycling team once again!

"I’m looking forward to helping Caleb Ewan in winning as many races as possible. Bringing Caleb in the best position to sprint will be my main role coming season. We already rode together at Mitchelton-SCOTT, so I know him quite well. I hope to achieve new successes with him and believe we have a solid team to do so in 2019. Besides my role in Ewan’s lead-out, Lotto Soudal can also count on my support in the Classics."

The biggest win Blythe has in his palmares is the 2014 Prudential RideLondon Classic. "It’s hard to describe myself as a specific type of rider as I’m quite a good all-rounder," the Briton explained. "I see myself as a clever cyclist. I save my energy wisely, so I still can push myself to the next level on the moments that really matter.

"Whether that is for the team or for myself. If I’ll get the opportunity to take my chance and add another victory to my list of achievements, I’ll, of course, take that opportunity with both hands. Yet, the main focus will be on Ewan and on helping him and the other leaders in the team win as many races as possible."
