Bob Jungels could not resist the pull of the Classics in Team Deceuninck-Quick Step with such an "electrifying" atmosphere.

For the second season, starting with Omloop Het Nieuwsblad on February 29, Jungels will help lead the famous Belgian WorldTour Team in the cobbled races.

"This team lives almost for for the Classics," Jungels told FloBikes.

"We always used to say that if you win Flanders or Roubaix in this team, you will have a statue of yourself somewhere in the headquarters. It's very special. The cool thing is they all – from the sponsors, the directors, the management and [team boss] Patrick Lefevere – they all live this. You can just feel that there's this tension, like in the meeting in the evening before the race, it's very electrifying.

"I remember before Omloop, I couldn't sleep because I was so nervous actually, and it was as already my seventh season as a pro. I was so happy to have Iljo Keisse with me in the room. He said, 'Stay calm and I'll bring you to the important points where you have to be in front.' But yeah, those races have something special."


After winning Liège-Bastogne-Liège in 2018, the Luxemburger switched to the Cobbled Classics for 2019. He won Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne and helped the team to victories like in E3 Harelbeke. For the 2020 spring campaign, he adds Paris-Roubaix to his list of races.

"This year I have that confidence to go to those races and I know that if I'm in top shape then I will be up there with with the best riders. I can go into this spring season in a different way," he added.

"I think it's going to be quite special again, like always this whole period is almost electrified. And, I hope I can be one of the leaders of the pack and I have a big cross on the Tour of Flanders. I just hope to be able to be my best possible shape."

The Saudi Tour marked a new chapter in the arguably aging career of Mark Cavendish. The latter part of Cavendish’s recently concluded tenure at Dimension Data was marred by crashes and illness, with few triumphs in between. Well, few triumphs when one considers the impossibly high bar that the 30 time Tour de France stage winner has set for himself.
