On Sunday April 2, 2017, the 101st edition of the “Ronde van Vlaanderen” Spring Classic took place and for the Quick Step Floors Cycling Team it was a real success. The likeable Belgian Phillippe Gilbert again demonstrated to be in a great shape. He just went “his own” time trial and none of his rivals was able to catch him up for the last 55 kilometers. Definitely, each rider has a dream to take such a monumental win and we are really happy that Philippe, the Belgian champion, was the one who managed to get it. Our hearts glowed with even greater joy when we also saw Niki Terpstra on the podium. Philippe enjoyed gracefully his ride to finish when crossing the finish line with the bike lifted above his head. When interviewed, he thanked the whole team for the excellent cooperation through the race. And this is where we could see that the team cooperation and work hard come to „earned fruition “.
