Guillaume is one of the most promising riders on the international circuit. Although everyone on the team refers to him as Julio for his perfect hair, cycling is in his blood. His father, Kurt, was a serious pro in the '80s, and his maternal grandfather, Benoni Beheyt, was the 1963 World Champion in Ronse. Guillaume is passionate about cars and fashion, and in 2013 he is hoping to advance his sporting career, perhaps even with a victory at a cobbled classic like Roubaix, which he won once as a junior.

Omega Pharma - Quick-Step Cycling Team did nothing short of escort Mark Cavendish to sprint position in the final kilometers of Tour of Qatar Stage 3, but it still took some maneuvering by the Manx Missile to get his second sprint victory of 2013.
The OPQS Team Presentation at the Eddy Merckx velodrome in Gent was not one to be missed. Sponsors, supporters, media, and others were able to watch the unique 2013 OPQS Championships team presentation in person, on television, and online!
