Born in Ghent, De Vreese has competed as a professional since the start of the 2011 season, riding as a member of the Topsport Vlaanderen–Mercator squad. At the 2012 running of Liège–Bastogne–Liège, De Vreese was one of a number of riders to be disqualified from the event as a result of taking a short-cut.[4]
