Zdenek Stybar has reached a new agreement with Deceuninck-Quick-Step. The Czech rider will remain in the Belgian formation until at least the end of the 2021 season.

The multiple cyclocross World Champion signs this new deal and celebrates ten years in the squad, a decade in which he has taken 17 victories -including a stage win in the Tour de France and the Vuelta a España and three Classics: Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, E3 Harelbeke and Strade Bianche.

"Extending my contract means a lot to me," Stybar explained. "I have a great relationship with everybody in the team and I'm happy that they always believed in me. They are like a second family and it's a real pleasure to be staying for two more years.

"I am hoping that these will be the best two years of my career and I will be really happy to be spending them with the Wolfpack and mark a decade – a third of my life – with this amazing squad."

Deceuninck-Quick-Step's CEO Patrick Lefevere also shared the enthusiasm with the rider. "Keeping hold of Zdenek means a lot to us," he commented. "He is one of our experienced riders, who can do everything and whose contribution can be seen in many of the team's results throughout a season.

"He is a winner and has the instinct and knowledge of how to take victories, which is always happy to share with our younger guys. And the tireless and selfless work that he does for others is immense. That's the kind of attitude we value."
