So I think it's time to get this man a thread, seeing that De Lie and even someone like Foss already have one...
Today a first WT victory in Poland, 9th of the season... he's ready for some hype.
Looks more well rounded than Groenewegen, time will tell if he can get the same top speed...
We'll see, hopefully Jumbo takes good care of him
 
Him and De Lie is probably the strongest pairing of 20-year-old sprinters the sport has ever seen in the same season.

He will need to move away from Jumbo at some point though. Will never get to do the sprints at the Tour with Van Aert there for starters, and with all the GC and classics riders in the team, it's hard to see Jumbo giving him the opportunities and support a top-level sprinter should consistently get. Given the amount of teams with good leadouts but no sprinter to capitalise right now (Bora, Intermarché, B&B with current signings), the market right now suits him better than it probably will when his contract runs out next year, but it is what it is.
