Quick-Step Floors will have Philippe Gilbert and Zdenek Stybar as leaders for the upcoming Strade Bianche.

The race has become one of the favourite classics for public and riders because of its dirt roads, rolling hills, picturesque landscapes and the 11 gravel sectors. Both Stybar and Philippe know what it is like to raise the arms at the end of the Italian race and are coming back with the intention of doing it again.

"We make no secret of the fact that we have several guys capable of winning on Saturday, but it won’t be easy, because there’s a star-studded field out there, with many strong riders all wanting the top prize," said sports director Davide Bramati.

"Unlike other years, the weather could play a bigger role this time, as we expect low temperatures and rain during the race, but we’ll do our best to kick-start the month of March on the right foot."

Quick-Step Floors' complete roster for Strade Bianche (3rd of March):

Eros Capecchi
Fernando Gaviria Rendon
Philippe Gilbert
Iljo Keisse
Maximilian Schachmann
Pieter Serry
Zdenek Stybar
