Zdenek Stybar has extended his contract with Quick-Step Floors. The Czech champion has been in the team since the 2011 season and will continue until 2019.

One of the best cyclo-cross riders of all time, Stybar has also achieved success in road cycling by winning stages in the Tour de France and the Vuelta a España, as well as finishing in second place in the 2015 and 2017 editions of Paris-Roubaix.

"To be honest, I can’t believe I have been with the team since 2011, time surely flies when you are having a good time, but what an amazing journey it has been to race with this squad over the past years," said the rider. "Having extended my contract for two more seasons means we can continue the great work we started together in 2011, which I am very grateful and happy about.

"I have enjoyed many beautiful moments and victories with these guys, and I owe a lot of people here big thanks, especially to the staff, which is the most dedicated and hard-working you will ever find."

The team's CEO Patrick Lefevere is glad with this contract extension and has expectations for the rider's future. "Everybody knows Zdenek’s quality, he is a rider who can shine in almost any type of race," he explained.

"He’s been part of this great family for seven years now and has achieved many very good results since shifting his attention from cyclo-cross to road cycling, but we still think he has a lot to show, especially in the Classics, and that’s why we offered him a new deal, which we are glad he accepted."
