Profile Quick-Step Floors:

This story began with the new thousand years, when Patrick Lefévère left Mapei in late 2000 to make his own group, which was initially called Domo and, from 2003 onwards, Quick Step, with a few co-supports. Czech extremely rich person Zdeněk Bakala is the present proprietor and essential investor of the group.

Since it centers around the works of art, the Belgian squad has never been worked to challenge for the Tour de France general grouping, where its best outcome so far was Dan Martin’s ninth place in 2016, expanding on Michał Kwiatkowski’s eleventh place in 2013. This has not prevented it from continually standing out as truly newsworthy in July, eminently on account of well known French riders. Lefévère did not lament giving Richard Virenque a possibility after his boycott in 2001, as the rider from the Var figured out how to remain in front of the serious canons on the ascend the Mont Ventoux in 2002 and, eleven years after his first endeavor, pulled on the yellow shirt in Morzine amid the centennial Tour. In 2004, still with Quick Step, he adjusted off his gathering of seven spotted shirts in Paris. Virenque’s successors in the Flemish group were no mistake either, as Cédric Vasseur and Sylvain Chavanel both won Tour stages.

Less and less Franco-Belgian and progressively global, the group now known as Quick-Step Floors stays predictable in the chase for organizing triumphs, winning ten times in the three versions from 2013 to 2015! The enlistment of Marcel Kittel as a substitution for Mark Cavendish expanded their streak with a win in Limoges in 2016. Dan Martin will pursue another main 10 complete as the pioneer of the group, while puncher Julian Alaphilippe will be compelled to sit out the race because of damage.
