Wanty - Groupe Gobert (WGG) - Wildcard
Another wildcard goes to Team Wanty – Groupe Gobert. Created in 2008 following the break-up of the Vacansoleil-DCM team, the Belgian team has been riding at the UCI Professional Continental level since 2011.
The team, which rides in a blue jersey, is made up of 15 Belgians, five Italians and one Dutchman. The most important riders and point scorers are the Belgian Bjorn Leukemans and the two Italians Enrico Gasparotto and Marco Marcato.
The broadly-based Belgian construction company "Wanty" and the wholesale building materials supplier "Groupe Gobert" complement one another perfectly, forming an ideal pair for the title sponsorship.
