Alaphilippe, who notched up three superb stage wins for Deceuninck – Quick-Step in Argentina and Colombia last year – in addition to being the best placed European rider in the general classification of both events – is looking forward to getting the new season going with the same two multi-day races where our team has tasted success on numerous occasions.

“This past season I had an excellent start of the year in the Vuelta a San Juan and Tour Colombia. It’s been amazing for me, a great experience, made even more memorable by the fantastic fans over there. I’m really happy I can start my season in these beautiful countries again and I will do my utmost to get some good results”, said the 27-year-old Frenchman, whose sterling 2019 season was capped off by winning the prestigious Velo d’Or trophy, which rewards the best rider in the world.
