Deceuninck – Quick-Step Floors Cycling Team (Spain) - Press Release: The Frenchman becomes the team’s 16th different rider to win a race this year.
Florian Sénéchal brought Deceuninck – Quick-Step’s 52nd victory of the season after an insane finale in Villanueva de la Serena, where stage 13 concluded. The 28-year-old benefitted from an excellent lead-out from his Deceuninck – Quick-Step teammates – who stormed to the front in the closing kilometers and split the peloton with the flamme rouge looming on the horizon – and delivered a perfect sprint with 150 meters to go.
Victorious in two races since joining the Wolfpack back in 2018, Sénéchal was supposed to launch green jersey Fabio Jakobsen, but the Dutchman dropped from the reduced front group and the Frenchman quickly became the man who carried the hopes of the team. In the last kilometer, Florian waited patiently for the finishing straight and kicked within sight of the line, holding off Matteo Trentin (UAE Team Emirates) for the biggest win of his career to date.
