Alaphilippe joined Omega Pharma-Quick Step in 2014. He obtained his first podium on the first stage of the Volta a Catalunya. He also was second in the fifth stage. Alaphilippe scored his first victory as a neo-pro in Stage 4 of Tour de l'Ain where he showed his explosiveness in an uphill finish ahead of Dan Martin.
2015 has been a breakthrough year for Alaphilippe. He acted as a supporter role in Ardennes classics to help his teammate and reigning world champion Michał Kwiatkowski, but surprisingly finished 7th in the Amstel Gold Race behind winner Kwiatkowski. In La Flèche Wallonne, his first time participating in the race, he continued to support Kwiatkowski but found his teammate too far behind at a crucial juncture. His team director told him to go for the win and he finished second after three-time winner Alejandro Valverde. The scenario repeated itself at Liège–Bastogne–Liège a few days later when Alaphilippe finished 2nd in his La Doyenne debut, again behind Valverde. In doing so, the 22 years old realized the best French performance on this classic since 1998, when Laurent Jalabert finished second.
After those performances and a string of podium finishes in the Tour de Romandie, Alaphilippe was on May 4 granted a contract extension for two more years, until the end of 2017. Later in the month he won the queen stage of the Tour of California and took over the lead in the general classification, 2 seconds ahead of Peter Sagan. However, he lost the overall eventually to Sagan by just 3 seconds in the last stage due to the time bonuses in a flat sprint.
