Quick-Step Floors heads to Tirreno-Adriatico with three riders with options to take stage victories and one captain to fight for the General Classification.

Fernando Gaviria will be appearing in the race for the third time in a row and will be, along with Zdenek Stybar, Niki Terpstra and Philippe Gilbert, fighting to take stage wins in the "Race of the Two Seas".

Bob Jungels, who led the young classification standings in the last two editions of the race, will be the GC man of the team and will try to top the third spot he got in 2016.

"I think it’s one of the strongest GC line-ups in years, and adding to that the cold temperatures and rain forecasted for this week, we should be in for quite a race, a very difficult one to predict, but to which we are looking forward," said Sports Director Rik van Slycke.

"Best young rider of the past two editions, Bob comes at the start with GC goals and we will support him as much as possible, while also creating and taking chances in other stages with the likes of Fernando, Philippe, Zdenek or Niki, who impressed last week in Le Samyn. The entire squad comes here in good shape and motivated, so we look ahead with confidence to this challenge."
