Death

Wanty-Groupe Gobert's homage to their fallen rider
Following Demoitié's death, his Wanty–Groupe Gobert team placed this tribute (pictured at the 2016 Tour of Britain) onto their team vehicles.

At the age of 25, Demoitié crashed on 27 March 2016 when he went down in a pile-up of several cyclists and was then hit by a motorcycle in the Gent–Wevelgem road race. He died that evening in the hospital.
