Young faces make a Quick.Step to the big time

Along with the recent two-year signings of Steven De Jongh (ex-Rabobank), Kevin Van Impe (ex-Chocolade Jacques) and Matteo Tosatto (ex-Fassa Bortolo), two young Italian riders have also been recruited to Quick.Step-Innergetic for the next three seasons.

21 year-old climber Ivan Santaromita comes from the Velo Club Mendrisio, while Davide Viganò, also 21, joins the team from Androni Giocattoli - 3C Casalinghi, a well-known amateur outfit managed by Davide Boifava. Both riders will make their first race debut at the GP Camaiore in Italy on August 4.

In addition, Kevin Neyrinck and Jasper Melis (cousin of Tom Boonen), both from the Beveren 2000 Team, will be riding for Quick.Step as stagiaires from August 1.
