Petr Vakoc has spent almost his entire professional cycling career under Patrick Lefevere's Quick-Step umbrella. He started his career in 2011 with the ASC Dukla Praha Continental team, before moving over to Etixx-IHNed in 2013. He made the jump to the WorldTour in 2013 with OmegaPharma Quick-Step, where he has remained under the various title sponsor changes. A debilitating incident involving car collision while he was training, left the Czech rider with a spinal injury that sidelined him for the entire 2018 season. He is set to make his return in 2019 with the newly named Deceuninck-QuickStep, and he plans to make his mark once again at the sport's highest level.
