Deceuninck – Quick-Step Floors Cycling Team (USA) - Press Release: The Frenchman was handsomely rewarded for his long day in the breakaway, which he capped off by scoring our 16th stage victory at the race.
Rémi Cavagna made it two in a row for Deceuninck – Quick-Step at the Tour of California, soloing to victory in Morgan Hill, the home of our sponsor Specialized, after attacking from the breakaway 75 kilometers out and holding off the chasers, in the process earning also the team’s 28th victory of the season.
“Since winning last year in Belgium, I was in search of another victory, and taking it today gives me huge satisfaction. I came in California to help the squad, to pull in the bunch every day, but the team gave me freedom today and I am happy I could repay them for their confidence. In cycling, you need to take your chance and give your best every single time, because sometimes it works. This was the case for me today”, said Rémi, the 11th different Deceuninck – Quick-Step rider to score a victory this season.
