Monumental showdown awaits Q36.5 Pro Cycling Team at Ronde van Vlaanderen

This year, the race is set to commence from the iconic city of Antwerp, a bustling metropolis with cobbled streets echoing the legacy of Belgian cycling. The peloton will steer south towards a battle across the heartland of Flandrien cycling before reaching the finish line in Oudenaarde, a picturesque town nestled amidst the rolling hills of the Flemish Ardennes.

Over the course of approximately 260 kilometers, riders will navigate a labyrinth of narrow roads, treacherous cobbled sections, and leg-sapping climbs, including the famed Oude Kwaremont and Paterberg.

Q36.5 Pro Cycling Team will line-up with a diverse roster of talents including an in-form Jannik Steimle, who sealed the first victory for the team in 2024 a few weeks ago at the GP de Denain. The 27-year-old German is excited about putting up a good showing:

“Ronde van Vlaanderen is one of the biggest races in the world, one with so much history and prestige. It’s always an honour to race the Ronde, it’s one of the races I watched the most as a kid and that made me start cycling. It’s a long race, one of the longest of the year and also one of the hardest. I expect a lot from this Sunday, especially from myself. I’ve felt good in the last weeks I hope things go well in the race, that we are not blocked from the crashed and unable to show our strength. One of my personal goals is to race as many Monuments as possible in my career,” said Jannik Steimle.

I’m over the moon to be racing Tour of Flanders this Sunday!”

Steimle will enjoy the support of Polish duo Szymon Sajnok and Kamil Malecki while local talent Tom Devriendt will once again receive extra cheers from the Belgian fans up the iconic Bergs in the Flemish countryside. Experienced Tobias Ludvigsson will bring precious tactical acumen to navigate the chaotic surges and counterattacks while neo-pro Fabio Christen hopes his explosives will allow him to conquer the countless bergs. Completing our squad is debutant Cyrus Monk. The owner of the most striking blond mullet in the pro-peloton is looking forward to a day he will never forget:

“I’m over the moon to be racing the Tour of Flanders this Sunday! I’ve been coming to this part of the World to race my bike at many different levels and the one thing that is constant is the support for cycling in this country, it really is the home of cycling, and to be doing the biggest race in the calendar in Flanders is really something special. The goals for the team and for myself will be similar: to be really active in the race! The way the races are playing out with crashes and constant splits in the peloton we can’t afford to be stuck on the back foot. In these races the best approach is to race from the front so we’re looking to do that and race aggressively this Sunday,” said Monk.


Q36.5 Pro Cycling Team aims to stay vigilant amidst the chaos of the peloton, ready to capitalize on opportunities as they arise. With a blend of ambition, teamwork, and determination, our seven-rider squad will embark on a journey that promises both pain and glory.
