Quick-Step Floors has signed Frenchman Florian Sénéchal. The rider will make the move to the WorldTour coming from Cofidis.

The rider that has won races like the 2011 Junior Paris-Roubaix is very happy to face this new challenge. "It’s difficult for me to express how excited I am to join Quick-Step Floors. This is one of the best teams in the world, with such a tremendous winning history," he said.

"I’ve been a big fan of this squad since I can remember, and the way they race has always been a big inspiration and motivation for me as a rider. I want to thank Cofidis for my time there, for all the beautiful experiences and the many good friends I’ve made there, as I now look forward to racing with Quick-Step Floors and starting a new chapter in my career."

Sénéchal has agreed on a two-year contract with the Belgian team and is set to be a reinforcement in the Spring Classics. "My goal is to be there in all the races and give my very best, but I have a special love for the Classics and it would be a big dream to win one of these iconic races with this fantastic team," he commented.

"Quick-Step Floors have fostered so many champions in the past 15 years and I’m sure they can also help me boost my abilities as a rider."

Quick-Step Floors' CEO Patrick Lefevere is confident that Sénéchal can add to the team's ambitions in the northern classics. "Florian is a strong and talented rider, whose addition to our squad I am sure will bear fruit, as he brings considerable experience, despite his young age. He is willing to learn and improve, and at the same time, is motivated and driven by passion for this sport, all important attributes to succeed as a rider at the highest level."
