Born in 1988, Serry is an all-round rider who shined on the road of Brabantse Pijl this year, where he finished third.

Serry also took a good 30th place at the 2012 Liege Bastogne Liege. “For a Belgian guy like me it’s an honour to ride for a team like Omega Pharma Quick-Step,” Serry said.

“It’s a dream come true. Next year will be my third year as a professional. I hope it can be an important step in my career.

"I really would like to compete in some of the big races and help out the team as much as possible. I have a lot to learn at this level, but on this team I’m sure I will find the right enviroment to grow up professionally.

"I want to thank Topsport Vlaanderen–Mercator for all the support they gave me in the last two years of professional cycling, and I wish them all the best for the future.” “Serry is a rider who has qualities,” Omega team manager Patrick Lefevere said.

“He already showed his skills during this season, but we think he can improve even more in the future.

"We are happy that another young and talented rider has joined our team.”
