Etixx - Quick-Step velodrome showcase live on team website!
Etixx – Quick-Step always has a strong bond with their fans, and has made engagement with supporters a main focus of the team. Etixx – Quick-Step proudly announces that they are taking this dedication to the fans a step further, by live streaming the 2015 Official Team Presentation!
The Etixx – Quick-Step "Velodrome Showcase" live stream will begin at 8 pm January 14th, and the event will be held at the track named after Belgian Cycling Legend Eddy Merckx at the Vlaams Wielercentrum in Gent (Belgium). This year the live stream will be opened by a speech from CEO Patrick Lefevere and will last approximately one hour. The live stream will feature the 2015 Etixx - Quick-Step riders being presented on the track one-by-one. The live stream will be closed by the first Elimination race.
"For our fans who bought venue tickets of course the show will be longer by a couple of hours," Lefevere said. "The fans who have tickets for the Tribune will have a great time, as they have in the first years. But for us it was also important to give our fans that are not based in Belgium the possibility to follow at least their favorite riders for the first hour online. We'd like to give our international supporters the feeling they are there with us as we introduce our team for the upcoming season."
However, fans all around the world can also follow the team presentation live on the team social channels, such as Twitter, and will also find a short recap with pictures at the end of the show on team website. Stay tuned tomorrow at 8 pm CET and enjoy this evening with all of us at Etixx – Quick-Step.
