Deceuninck-Quick-Step is ready to tackle the BinckBank Tour with a strong team led by Philippe Gilbert, Bob Jungels and Zdenek Stybar.

The Belgian team has taken 17 stage victories, six secondary classifications and two overall wins in the race. The 2019 edition of the Dutch-Belgian competition will have many opportunities for the sprinters in the first half and then the General Classification riders will have their turn to shine.

"The route isn't an easy one, but it's always like this at the BinckBank Tour," said sports director Tom Steels. "The short Ardennes-type stage should be very tough, full gas right from the start, and could end up having quite a big impact on the race, but ultimately, the GC will be played on the final day.

"It's a race that suits us, and in Philippe, Bob and Styby we have three riders who can have a say in the overall standings, while Alvaro will go for the bunch sprints, where he is capable of getting some nice results."

Deceuninck-Quick-Step's roster for the BinckBank Tour (August 12 to 18):

Tim Declercq
Philippe Gilbert
Alvaro Jose Hodeg Chagui
Bob Jungels
Iljo Keisse
Florian Sénéchal
Zdenek Stybar
