Bit of a senior moment for me with this transfer as I thought he had already signed for Caja, but of course that was Schultz.

The Klein Constantia rider, coming from Christchurch, New Zealand, Hamish has certainly caught the eyes of many after a strong showing this season, including 3rd place in the Under 23 Paris - Roubaix and winning the GC in Carpathian Couriers stage race, a race in which he also took victories in two stages as well. Schreurs also won his Native lands Under 23 championship for the second time (his first was in 2015).

Schreurs impressive performance earned him a promotion from his team Klein Constantina up the ranks to the Etixx-Quick step squad, who added him to the team as a trainee this summer.

Ran Margaliot, expressed his confidence that Hamish will be able to deliver. “We believe he is an exceptional rider as he is so versatile: He can ride the Pave in the Classics so well, but he can also manage the climbs in tour races. He has a good sprint, and, first and foremost – Hamish has proved himself as a rider with very high race intelligence. Put it all together with his self-motivation and an ability to adapt — coming from New Zealand to Europe - and we concluded that we have here a really exceptional talent”.

He was at Veranclassic - Doltcini in 2014 and Sojasun Espoirs in 2015, so as Sean would say, he's had his head kicked in, in both Belgium and France.
