Biniam Girmay and the
With a surprising sprint, the Eritrean talent writes a new chapter in professional cycling.
Biniam Girmay, with DMT on his feet, enters the history of cycling by triumphing at the Gand-Wevelgem 2022. After 249 kilometers full of challenges and adrenaline, Biniam surprises everyone with a spectacular sprint that leads him to the victory of one of the most important pavé classics. An incredible performance that marks a new era: the Eritrean talent in fact is the first African rider in history to conquer a great classic worldtour.
“It’s amazing, I just didn’t expect it. We changed our plans just Friday night. I came here to get a good result, but I never thought I could win a race like this. This victory obviously changes a lot of things for me, but I think the most important one is that it will be important for the future of many African cyclists”.
A historic success that brings the name of Biniam Girmay added to the list of the greatest cyclists who, during the 83 editions of the Gand-Wevelgem, won the first place in the competition. These include Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault, Francesco Moser, Tom Boonen, Mario Cipollini and Peter Sagan.
DMT, once again, is proud to be partners of athletes who write the history of cycling.
Thank you Biniam and ad maiora!
