Quick-Step Floors has confirmed 27 riders for its 2018 season roster. The team will have seven new riders joining ahead of the upcoming year.

The Belgian squad closed the 2017 season with 56 victories in UCI races, making it the sixth consecutive season that it breaks the 50-wins barrier. During its 15 years of existence, the team lead by Patrick Lefevere has taken 615 wins in total.

Although the team lost Marcel Kittel, David de la Cruz and Dan Martin, Quick-Step Floors managed to retain most of the riders that were the core of the team throughout the season and faces 2018 with 27 riders coming from 13 different countries. The average age of the team will be of 26.85 years, being one of the youngest squads in the WorldTour.

"We have many new riders, some of them very young, but we look with the same confidence and excitement to the new season which looms just around the corner. Last season was a spectacular one and next year we’ll try to be again in the mix, be it Classics or stage races, and replicate many of the great 2017 wins," said Lefevere.

"The riders and the staff are always working hard, they know that getting to the top and staying there it’s no easy task, but they are all professionals and very passionate about what they are doing, and seeing their relentless dedication makes me very optimistic and eager about taking on the new season."

Quick-Step's roster for the 2018 season: Julian Alaphilippe, Eros Capecchi, Rémi Cavagna, Laurens De Plus, Tim Declercq, Dries Devenyns, Fernando Gaviria, Philippe Gilbert, Alvaro Hodeg, Fabio Jakobsen, Bob Jungels, Iljo Keisse, James Knox, Yves Lampaert, Davide Martinelli, Enric Mas, Michael Mørkøv, Jhonatan Narvaez, Maximiliano Richeze, Fabio Sabatini, Maximilian Schachmann, Florian Sénéchal, Pieter Serry, Zdenek Stybar, Niki Terpstra, Petr Vakoc and Elia Viviani.
