Etixx-QuickStep have signed Tim Declercq.

 

A former U23 National Champion, Tim Declercq turned professional in 2012 and since then has proved his credentials in the one-day races, notching top 10 placings in various events such as Coppa Bernocchi, Tour du Finistère, Dwars door het Hageland, Schaal Sels and Le Samyn. A powerful rider who isn’t afraid of taking on tough races, the 27-year-old will now step up to World Tour level with Etixx – Quick-Step, where he is expected to be a solid pillar of the team.

“I am very excited, this move is a dream come true! It’s really great to sign a contract with Etixx – Quick-Step and know that from now on I will be part of this team and bring my services whenever people will need me. I talked with Patrick Lefevere, I know what my role will be and I’m ready to give it my all and work really hard. It’s an honor to ride for Etixx – Quick-Step, a team who loves the cobbles as much as I do and I am grateful for this opportunity. I also want to send my thanks to Topsport Vlaanderen for being by my side during my first pro years, as this meant a lot for me”, said Tim Declercq, who featured in the original breakaway at the past two editions of Paris-Roubaix.

Patrick Lefevere, the CEO of Etixx – Quick-Step, was content with this new transfer for the upcoming season and welcomed the Belgian to the team: “We were looking for such a rider to add to our 2017 roster and Tim really fits well into our structure. We’ve been following him for some time now and could see he is very consistent, a strong rider on which you can rely in any kind of situation. He has a big engine that he can really put to work on the flat and I’m confident that he will repay our trust and be very important in our set-up for next year.”
