QuickStep-AlphaVinyl boss Patrick Lefevere has said that he is looking at building up a structure of teams outside of the main WorldTour squad he oversees, with women's team NXTG-Experza his "priority" as he hopes a partnership with Tormans – current sponsor of the cyclo-cross team Tormans-Circus – can birth a Continental squad feeding into QuickStep.

Writing in his weekly column in Het Nieuwsblad, Lefevere said that, away from the WorldTour squad, he is focussed on the the Dutch women's development team NXTG, which saw Experza – a company he co-owns – became co-sponsor of for 2022.
