Ready for Quick Step debut

Ready for Quick Step debut

Our world champion is back in Belgium after spending close to a month (April 4-21) preparing for the road season in Mallorca. “I got in a lot of good training. How many hours did I ride? A lot!”

With Arnaud Grand, who stayed for 10 days, and Vojta Cervinek close by, Zdenek wasn't lonely. “Vojta was on the scooter so I was able to ride behind him. It was really nice.”

The last three days our Czech came across more familiar faces. “I rode a bit with my new teammate Kevin De Weert, Sven Nys and Sven Vanthourenhout. The guys from KDL Trans were there too with the Cannibal.”

Now that the training camp is behind him, Zdenek is ready to make his Quick Step debut. “That will be in the Four Days of Dunkirk,” he said. “Then I'll ride the Tour de Picardie, the Tour of Belgium and probably the Tour of Switzerland as well.”
