On 10 November 2008, it was announced that Sergent had signed with Trek–Livestrong's under-23 development team, for 2009 and 2010. Sergent became a stagiaire with Team RadioShack for the last part of the 2010 season. He then signed a professional contract for 2011 with Team RadioShack.

In 2013, Sergent rode for RadioShack–Leopard. He started the racing season with New Zealand elite road nations where he placed third.
