Boonen, Martin, Kwiatkowski, Vermote, Terpstra & Serry to represent Omega Pharma – Quick-Step UCI World Team Time Trial Championship. Tom Steels says “the parcours looks more difficult than the one of last year, more technical for sure but fortunately we will fly there Wednesday, so we will have three days to get into the rhythm of the race, to study details, and prepare as best we can”.

“The team is strong. We believe this team can repeat the success of the first two attempts. All the guys showed they are in good condition for the race where they each competed in the last week. We have Tony Martin, who is the core as three-time UCI World TT Champion. Then we have Niki Terpstra, who is a guarantee to perform in this effort as he was on the world championship team the last two years. Then we have Michal Kwiatkowski, who was a part of the team last year and showed his strength at Tour of Britain a few days ago.”

“Tom Boonen is also there. He can’t wait to be a part of the team again after the experience the 2012 gold medal in Valkenburg. Then we have the two new rider selections in Pieter Serry and Julien Vermote. Serry was selected for the Belgian World TT Championship team, which shows his prowess and his condition for the chrono. Vermote just won a race at Tour of Britain with a long breakway and a solo victory. Both guys showed their ability and also their improvement, particularly through working on time trials with the help of Specialized. So the team is really competitive and ready to play a role in Ponferrada.”

The OPQS riders selected will be available for the media by request on Saturday the 20th of September, between 2:30 and 3 p.m.
