Our new vehicle is versatile, packed with great features and has a stunning design.
The last month of the summer sees Quick-Step Floors enhance its already impressive fleet with the addition of an ultra-modern 12m-long MAN truck, which has been built and customized to meet the needs of the World Tour team classification leader, following the specific requirements of the mechanics and soigneurs of the squad, who are so important in our success.
Beautifully crafted on the inside, this new 460-horsepower robust truck with automatic gear box and Quick-Step floor has three slides, which when completely open provide a proper and clean environment for the mechanics to work and prepare the bikes regardless of the weather outside, thanks to the split air-conditioned system which can warm up and cool down the space.
The wonderful kitchen, equipped with a big extended working surface, microwave cooking plate, two big fridges, integrated LED light and plenty of storage compartments is much to the liking of the team's soigneurs, who have to take care of the riders' food and drinks during the races. The washing machine and dryer – a must when traveling for over 200 days a year across Europe to attend the numerous races on the calendar – can also be found in the front area of the truck, which incorporates the panel for controlling the truck's electrics, generator and alarm system.
"This year we took our fleet to another level. In March we added a new motorhome, followed now by this beautiful truck. This is because we always want to give our staff and riders a cutting-edge technology, which automatically brings safety and comfort, laying down the foundations for performing", said Quick-Step Floors' CEO, Patrick Lefevere.
"As constructor we are very proud that Quick-Step Floors trusted us again to be their partner and build this spectacular service truck. The idea was to maximize spaces and incorporate a wide range of amenities, knowing how important these factors are for the team, and we can be satisfied looking at the outcome", added Dirk De Bock, director of Krismar Horse Trucks.
Quick-Step Floors' fleet now numbers nearly 30 vehicles – 18 Peugeot cars, three trucks, two vans, two buses and one camper – a testimony to the team's continuous desire of improving, being the best and achieving the most out of every opportunity, which are some of our outfit's defining traits since the start of our adventure in 2003.
