Fabio Jakobsen is set to lead Deceuninck-Quick-Step at the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana.

The Dutch champion will start his season at the Spanish race and will attempt to seize every opportunity in the stages that finish in bunch sprints. This competition will also be a good test for the condition of the entire roster with hard mountain stages, including the new climb of the Sierra de Bernia, which will be on the penultimate day.

"All the guys present in Valencia will kick off their season there after three training camps," said Deceuninck-Quick-Step's sports director Tom Steels. "We have two new riders on the team and we are eager to see them in action: Stijn, who will control the race together with Tim and maybe also Rémi, and Davide, who together with Yves will be part of Fabio's sprint train.

"We'll try to win a stage with him, but with two uphill finishes, one of which is very steep, we will be looking to see also the condition of James, and why not, maybe go for a good general classification."

Deceuninck-Quick-Step's roster for the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana (February 5-9):

Davide Ballerini
Rémi Cavagna
Tim Declercq
Fabio Jakobsen
James Knox
Yves Lampaert
Stijn Steels
