2. Quick-Step Floors
At one point during the spring it appeared that Quick-Step Floors, one of the mainstays of the peloton, were on the brink as the team struggled to secure sponsorship funding. While the Belgian team and its supporters wondered if there was life after Tom Boonen – the classics legend retired following Paris-Roubaix – they need not have worried.
Renaissance man Philippe Gilbert rolled back the years in the spring when he won the Tour of Flanders and Amstel Gold while team-mate Julian Alaphilippe book-ended his season with podium finishes at Milan-Sanremo and Il Lombardia to bolster Quick-Step Floors's tally.
It was Dan Martin, though, who earned the lion's share of Quick-Step Floors's points in his final year with Patrick Lefevere's team thanks to podium finishes at Liège-Bastogne-Liège and Flèche Wallonne while some consistent stage racing saw the Irishman cement his place as the team's most valuable rider of the season. Unfortunately for Quick-Step Floors the 31-year-old is heading off to UAE Emirates next season.
