Quick Step (UCI Team Code: QST) is a Belgian UCI ProTour cycling team led by team manager Patrick Lefévère. The directors are Rik Verbrugghe, Davide Bramati, Wilfried Peeters, Rik Van Slycke and Luca Guercilena. The mechanics are Jeanick Verstraete and Kurt Roose. The sponsor Quick Step is a manufacturer of laminate flooring.

The team was created as Quick Step-Davitamon in 2003 after the Mapei-Quick Step disbanded after nine years. Paolo Bettini won the UCI Road World Cup in 2003 and 2004 as well as the Athens Olympics road title in 2004. In the 2005 UCI ProTour season, renamed Quick Step-Innergetic, the team won a large number of classics: Tom Boonen won Ronde van Vlaanderen and Paris-Roubaix, Filippo Pozzato the HEW Cyclassics, and Paolo Bettini the Züri-Metzgete and the Giro di Lombardia. In late 2005 Tom Boonen won the UCI Road World Championships in Madrid, where Michael Rogers won the time-trial.

In 2006 Boonen retained the Ronde van Vlaanderen and wore the yellow jersey in the Tour de France, and Filippo Pozzato won Milan-Sanremo. Paolo Bettini won the world championship in Salzburg and retained his Giro di Lombardia crown. In 2007 Tom Boonen won the points classification in the Tour de France, taking two stage wins. Bettini defended his world championship in Stuttgart. In 2008 Gert Steegmans took the final stage of the Tour de France on the Champs-Élysées. Paolo Bettini retired after the world championship in Varese. In both 2008 and 2009 Stijn Devolder took the Ronde van Vlaanderen and Tom Boonen, Paris-Roubaix.
