On-bike footage from the Etixx Quick-Step training camp (video)

Etixx Quick-Step release some on-bike footage of their rides in Spain and announce their Tour Down Under squad

We all love GoPro footage, especially from the professional teams, so it's a good job Etixx-Quick-Step have released a short video of their recent training camp in Oliva.

Sporting their new team colours for the first time, Mark Cavendish and co get their chaingang skills going as they whizz along the Spanish streets.

Training in the beating sun, Etixx Quick-Step clearly chose to film their riders in better weather than FDJ did recently in the same Mediterranean location.

On their 2015 bikes the Belgian team have ditched their SRAM components for a Shimano groupset for the coming season, leaving SRAM with only AG2R La Mondiale sporting their wares next year.

Etixx Quick-Step will be returning to the Spanish seaside in early 2015 as they ramp up their preparations for 2015, with the team announcing their starting lineup for the Tour Down Under.

Tour Down Under squad

Maxime Bouet, David De La Cruz, Yves Lampaert, Gianni Meersman, Mark Renshaw, Pieter Serry, Martin Velits
