A huge fan of the Grand Tours, especially the Giro d’Italia, Serge is one of the best climbers around. A great team player, he was one of Cavendish’s most trusted lieutenants at the Giro d’Italia. As mild-mannered in life as he is determined on the bike, Sergio loves Italy: “I like everything about it—the food, the people and of course the big climbs.” In October 2013 another dream came true for him when he married the lovely Ine, who also travels with him frequently. She was a professional cyclist on Christel Herremans’s team. (Christel is the wife of OPQS sports director Rik Van Slycke.) Serge also has a degree in applied economy, which he hopes to put to use one day in the world of cycling.

Serge's news

Omega Pharma - Quick-Step Cycling Team were once again protagonists at the Giro d'Italia. This time, it was Thomas De Gendt and Serge Pauwels in a big escape group at the 208km 17th Stage. De Gendt went on to finish 4th, and Pauwels 10th.

In the final kilometres of the fourth stage in the Tour Down Under OPQS riders Jan Bakelants and Serge Pauwels attacked from the peloton. They opened up a small gap and seemed on their way to a surprise.

Omega Pharma - Quick-Step Cycling Team rider Serge Pauwels — who made an original 32-rider breakaway that produced the stage winner of 142.2km La Vuelta a España Stage 20 on Saturday — finished 9th in the brutal final that included Angliru.
