Team Sunweb has announced the signing of young Belgian talent Ilan Van Wilder from the 2020 season.

The 19-year-old has inked a contract with the German team until at least the end of 2022. Van Wilder takes a step up to the WorldTour after one year riding in the U23 ranks, where he achieved top-15 results in races like the Tour of Flanders, the Tour de l'Avenir and Liege-Bastogne-Liege.

"I’m looking forward to joining the team to develop my abilities and make the best out of my career in the long term," said the Belgian. "My goal is to learn as much as possible and really work towards reaching my full potential – I believe this is a great place for me to do that. Stage racing suits me well, and I am really looking forward to gaining more experience in that field together with Team Sunweb.

"I like the long term vision that the team has with me, and the fact they won’t skip any steps along the way. I can’t wait to join and would like to thank my current team Lotto-Soudal for the opportunities they have given me."
