Garmin-Sharp signs Sebastian Langeveld
garmin-sharplogo Team Garmin-Sharp today announced it has signed Dutch professional cyclist Sebastian Langeveld, who will join the team in 2014.

Langeveld is a Classics specialist who won the 2011 Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and finished fifth in that year’s Tour of Flanders. In 2013, Langeveld finished tenth in the Tour of Flanders, seventh in Paris-Roubaix, and fifth in E3 Harelbeke.

“I chose Garmin-Sharp because I know I will find a great Classics team with depth, experience and talent. I believe in 2014 we can be successful and play an important role in the Northern Classics just as the team did this year in the Ardennes. I am also hoping to be part of the Grand Tour teams and support the GC leaders as much as possible in achieving their goals. I was exited to see Garmin-Sharp racing aggressively and full of passion in the Tour de France this year and I am happy to join this group and be supportive on the highest level,” said Langeveld. “I am looking forward the next two years and am happy to be joining a team with a great history and a specific character and I will work hard for the first goals of 2014.”

Langeveld’s palmares include:

2013
3rd Dutch National Road Race Championships
5th E3 Harelbeke
7th Paris–Roubaix
10th Tour of Flanders

2012
1st Stage 1 (TTT) Tirreno–Adriatico
1st Stage
9th Overall Eneco Tour

3rd TTT World Championships
5th Dutch National Road Race Championships

2011
1st Omloop Het Nieuwsblad
1st Stage 1 (TTT) Tirreno–Adriatico
5th Tour of Flanders

Jonathan Vaughters, CEO of Slipstream Sports and Team Garmin-Sharp, added: “Sebastian is a huge talent. He is a rider that excels in many disciplines and in particular, he will be a very strong addition to our Classics squad. He’s already proven what he can do in these races and we are excited to have him on board starting in 2014.”
