The Quick.Step – Innergetic team will bid adieu to two of their most respected athletes, Peter Van Petegem and Serge Baguet this week. As previously announced, the race on Tuesday in Desselgem will be the last of their careers for both of the athletes. "It will be an emotional moment," said team manager Patrick Lefevere. "Peter and Serge have been two important athletes not just for our team but for both the Belgian and International cycling movement in general.

"We thought the best way to say our farewells to them is by organising a party and inviting their friends. Not all of the team will be able to attend due to racing commitments, but at the end of the season we'll all get together to wish them all the very best for the future."

Quick.Step for Desselgem: Serge Baguet, Wilfried Cretskens, Steven De Jongh, Sébastien Rosseler, Kevin Seeldraeyers, Gert Steegmans, Bram Tankink, Peter Van Petegem, Maarten Wynants, Detlef Moerman D.S.: Rik Van Slycke
