Quick-Step Floors is ready for one of the first races of the season, the Vuelta a San Juan. Colombian Fernando Gaviria will return to one of the more important places of his career so far.

The Belgian team has experience taking victories in the South American country with a total of 15 in half a decade, and will now return for a second consecutive appearance at the Vuelta a San Juan.

The race will take place between the 21st and the 28th of January and will see Fernando Gaviria trying to start the season with stage victories as happened in the two years before. It was there where he started shining on the international scene which led to a contract with the team.

Local rider Maximiliano Richeze, Colombian Alvaro Hodeg and Ecuadorian Jhonatan Narvaez complete the Latin American representation in the team. They will be accompanied by the experienced Iljo Keisse and Remi Cavagna.

"Vuelta a San Juan is a good race to start the season. We took five stage wins in the previous edition, so it’s only normal to line up at the start motivated to start the year with a good result. Concerning our team, you can see it’s a mix of young and experienced riders, who will have their chances to shine, especially in the bunch sprints, so we are looking forward to this race," said sports director Davide Bramati.
