Deceuninck-QuickStep have announced the team's first gathering since the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic swept through Europe in March. An unspecified number of riders will gather for a training camp in northern Belgium in mid-June ahead of the start of a revised cycling season in August. The riders are likely to be part of the Classics group that will then target the one-day races rescheduled for August and October. 

Earlier this month, Israel Start-Up Nation held a limited training camp in northern Israel, but Deceuninck-QuickStep's camp is the first that will see a sizable part of a WorldTour squad come together since the season ground to a halt two months ago.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
