João Almeida and Alvaro Hodeg will be among our seven riders in action at the 78th edition of the race.

Ten stage victories and an overall title is our team’s rich crop from the previous participations at the Tour de Pologne, where we’ll line up again in just a couple of days with a squad capable of fighting on every terrain.

Sixth overall at the Giro d’Italia, João Almeida will be back in competition with the Wolfpack for the first time since the National Championships, where a solid ride in the ITT brought him his maiden victory in the pro ranks. The Portuguese all-rounder will have the opportunity to show that jersey on the 19km stage against the clock in Katowice, which is expected to weigh heavily in the final outcome as the big climbs are absent this year.

French Champion Rémi Cavagna is another Deceuninck – Quick-Step rider eager to show his National Champion jersey for the first time since conquering it on the road more than six weeks ago, in Épinal. Tim Declercq, Ian Garrison, former stage winner Alvaro Hodeg, Mikkel Honoré and Stijn Steels will round out our squad for the 78th edition of the race, which is set to take place between 9-15 August.

“We’re heading to Poland with a strong team and a lot of confidence. Alvaro took a fine win in France just last week and will have a couple of opportunities also here, while in João, Rémi  and Mikkel we’ll have three guys capable of playing a role in the general classification fight. Last but not least, Tim, Ian and Stijn will be an important asset to the team at this edition, which should be decided by the two uphill finishes and the penultimate day time trial”, said Deceuninck – Quick-Step sports director Geert Van Bondt.
