Paris-Roubaix, a key cobbled section. Matteo suffers a mechanical in a key moment without a team car able to help, in a race where one flat can cost you the race. But despite bad luck in the Classics he loves so much, Matteo proved once again in 2014 that he is a rider to be contended with in the peloton. First, he won a long sprint in Tour de Suisse after Tony Martin gave him a brilliant leadout that was so strong there was a gap going into the final kilometer. Then the Italian rider won the second Tour de France stage of his career, in just two participations. He won by centimeters in the 7th stage of the 2014 edition over the Slovak superstar Peter Sagan in a final that the French people call the “legendary” Le Boyau de Nancy.

In 2015 Matteo would like to keep getting better in any way there is an opportunity, and maybe with some better luck in the Classics. “You can always put your level higher with all of these opportunities and different types of races. Even if I have already won a couple stages of the Tour de France, which is a big honor, if I am only happy with that, I will never improve. You can be happy with these victories and still not be satisfied overall as a rider. I am eager to grow with teammates who work so well together and a staff that is knowledgable and supportive."

Paris-Tours: Trentin Concludes Road Season as a Victor!

France is a good place to race for Etixx - Quick-Step rider Matteo Trentin. The Italian rider won Paris-Tours out of a three-rider breakaway he initiated on Sunday, adding a third victory at a French race to his four total wins in the 2015 season. He's now won five career races in France out of eight.

Gran Piemonte: Trentin Takes 2nd as Late Solo Attacker Wins

Etixx - Quick-Step rider Matteo Trentin finished 2nd, chasing alone and finishing with a gap on 3rd place finisher Sonny Colbrelli (Bardiani - CSF Pro Team), at the end of 185km Gran Piemonte on Friday. Unfortunately, a well-timed attack by Jan Bakelants (AG2R - La Mondiale), after the original breakaway was caught at 5km to go, won the Italian race.

Etixx - Quick-Step rider Matteo Trentin secured a 3rd place finish in the predicted sprint finale of the 14-lap, 86.8km 8th Stage of Aviva Tour of Britain on Sunday in London.
