Deceuninck – Quick-Step Floors Cycling Team (France) - Press Release: Valence became the 27th different town where the Manxman has captured a victory at the race, after another stellar effort from the Wolfpack.
Deceuninck – Quick-Step produced another masterpiece, this time in the form of an out of this world lead-out, powering through in the finale of the nervous stage 10 for Mark Cavendish, who kicked out with 100 meters to go and sailed to his 33rd stage win at the Tour de France.
Tim Declercq and Dries Devenyns were again the ones to lay down the watts early, controlling the escapees and protecting Cavendish on a short unclassified climb with 35 kilometers to go and also later, when the race hit some exposed and potentially dangerous roads. Then, with the business end of the stage approaching fast, the well-drilled Deceuninck – Quick-Step train hit the front of the peloton and steamrolled the opposition.
