The Quick-Step Floors cycling team — known as Etixx-Quick-Step in 2016 — will present a film about its 2016 race season at the 2017 team presentation on January 11 in Kortrijk, Belgium. A film crew followed the team from its training camp in Calpe through the world road championships in Doha, Qatar, capturing the team’s highs and lows, most memorable victories and deepest disappointments.
Tom Boonen, Julian Alaphilippe, and Marcel Kittel are three riders that the film focuses on.
“It’s unusual to have a filming crew with you all the time, but I must say the result is great,” Boonen said. “I like the way all the small stories that happen in a cycling team were bonded together. As rider you never see what happens around you because you are focused only on the race. It was nice to see how the other riders and the staff reacted in the crucial moments.”
