Alpecin-Fenix 2022 Strategy

The team is focussing on the Spring Classic races and Sprint stage wins.

It is going to be challenging to beat the the squad on sprint finishes. As most of team riders are either Flondrian (Spring Classics) specialist or sprinters. In other words, there are a lot of Watts in this team.

VAN DER POEL Mathieu, DILLIER Silvan, LEYSEN Senne, MERLIER Tim, VAN KEIRSBULCK Guillaume, VERMEERSCH Gianni, VERMOTE Julien are the riders racing the Paris-Roubaix 2022.

VAN DER POEL Mathieu, BAYER Tobias, DE BONDT Dries, KRIEGER Alexander, LEYSEN Senne, MARECZKO Jakub, OLDANI Stefano, and RIESEBEEK Oscar are on the Giro d’Italia 2022 to win any stages, especially in the first week.

Michael Gogl, Jay Vine, Edward Anderson, Floris De tier are the climbers of the squad.

Xandro Meurisse is a potential candidate for GC classification should it becomes the team strategy.

An interesting fact is a new sponsor joined for 2022, it is Deceuninck. Deceuninck has been a long time sponsor of Quick Step Team, the Belgian World Tour team. Despite having the new official partner name on its jerseys, Alpecin-Fenix team keeps its name unchanged.

Team Alpecin-Fenix UCI abbreviation is AFC.
