Julian Alaphilippe and Zdenek Stybar are set to lead Deceuninck-Quick-Step in Starde Bianche next Saturday.

The 15th edition of the already iconic race will take the riders through a 184-kilometre route that will feature 63 kilometres of sterrati and finish in the Piazza del Campo of Siena. The World Champion -winner of the competition in 2019- will share the leadership of the Belgian race with the former cyclocross World Champion -who also won the race in 2015.

“We love Strade Bianche, we won it several times in the past and we’re always glad when we’re at the start of this great race which has it all,” said Deceuninck-Quick-Step’s sports director Davide Bramati.

“The parcours, same like last year, is a hard one and there are many favourites, so it won’t be easy, but we’ll try to be again among the protagonists. The team is a strong one, we have more than one option and we hope to be there in the key moments of the race.”

Deceuninck-Quick-Step’s line-up for Strade Bianche (March 6):
