Quick-Step Floors are the most successful team in the peloton at the moment, winning stages at both the Dubai Tour and the Colombia Oro y Paz. The Belgian team will look to add to its growing list of successes at this week’s Volta ao Algarve, a race where it has dominated in the past.
Jungels, 24, will be making his debut in this race, “but I’m not going there only as part of a preparation campaign. I will grab all the opportunities I can, I feel good and looking over the course, it’s a race that suits me,” he said in a team press release.
“I don’t know if I can compete for the general classification, it’s still too early to say that, but as you could see in Murcia, my form is good and that’s all that matters.” The Luxembourg national road champion opened his season at the Vuelta a Murcia, where he finished seventh overall.
Philippe Gilbert was also at Murcia, finishing third. He won a stage in the Volta ao Algarve in 2011.
The two will be supported by Yves Lampaert, Maximilian Schachmann, Florian Senechal, Pieter Serry and Zdenek Stybar.
