Omega Pharma-Quick Step is known as the strongest team when it comes to racing in windy conditions and so it is no surprise that the team has won the first two editions of the World Ports Classic. The team has selected another strong roster as they try to make it three in a row.

 

Omega Pharma - Quick-Step Cycling Team has announced the selection that will participate in World Ports Classic, a 354km two-day race on May 24th and May 25th.

"It's a race of the wind," Sport Director Wilfried Peeters said. "We won already the last two years, with Nikolas Maes in 2013 and Tom Boonen in 2012. This year we have a good team at the start, with riders who have the skills for this kind of parcours. Tomorrow they predicted a bit more wind than Sunday, so tomorrow it's important to be there in front and try to go for the stage. Then, we will see what can happen. But of course our goal is to try to go there and do as we did in the last two years."

 

Omega Pharma-Quick Step for the World Ports Classic:

Julian Alaphilippe (FRA)
Kevin De Weert (BEL)
Andrew Fenn (GBR)
Nikolas Maes (BEL)
Gert Steegmans (BEL)
Petr Vakoc (CZE)
Guillaume Van Keirsbulck (BEL)
Stijn Vandenbergh (BEL)
