Girmay’s salary set to triple after his Gent-Wevelgem victory

When Biniam Girmay returns to Europe from Eritrea after his break from racing, he is likely to ink a new contract with the Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert team that will triple his current salary of €300,000 and place him at the centre of the team’s Classics squad.

Girmay is already under contract until 2024 after the Belgian team saw his potential last year and signed him from the struggling Delko team. However, his victory at Gent-Wevelgem and his huge potential in sprints and the Classics mean even team manager Jean-Francois Bourlart is ready to triple his contract with backing from the European supermarket chain.

Girmay made history by winning Gent-Wevelgem and is said to be happy at the team thanks to close support from Performance Director Aike Visbeek and experienced directeurs sportif Hilaire van der Schueren and Valerio Piva. Girmay had the support of Adrien Petit, Alexander Kristoff and Andrea Pasqualon in the decisive moments of Gent-Wevelgem but the team is expected to further strengthen its Classics squad to protect Girmay and back his ambitions in 2023.

Cyclingnews understands that his salary and bonuses will see him earn over €1 million per season, with the new deal lasting until the end of 2024.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Bourlart will meet with Girmay’s agent Alex Carera to thrash out a new deal, with Girmay likely to sign a new contract when he returns to Europe for the Eschborn-Frankfurt race in Germany. He will then ride the Giro d’Italia, making his Grand Tour debut in Italy.

Girmay will turn 22 on Saturday and celebrate at home in the Eritrean capital of Asmara with his young family after three months away from home.
