Keisse Extends Contract for Two Seasons (2013-2014)

Omega Pharma - Quick-Step Cycling Team is pleased to announce the contract extension of 29-year-old Iljo Keisse. Keisse, who was a part of the team for the past three years, extends his contract for the next two seasons (2013-2014).

"Iljo is improving year by year on the road races," Patrick Lefevere said."This year he won also an unforgettable stage in Turkey with a thrilling final. We believe he can improve even more and become a good team player. Iljo is also a great track rider. With him we have the possibility to guarantee visibility to our sponsors even in the winter, during the track season."

"It's an honor to be a part of this team even in the future," Keisse said. "In the last years the team always supported me, even in the difficult moments. This year I participated also in Paris-Roubaix, my dream race. I hope to be able to compete in the great classics even in the next years and I will work for it. Now I will focus on the last part of the road season and then, during the winter I will ride also few Six Days, maybe not all of them. My first focus, in agreement with the team, is to prepare as best as possible for the 2013 road season."
