Deceuninck-Quick-Step is ready to face the Münsterland Giro with a strong team that can support Alvaro Hodeg until the end.

The German race will take the peloton between Emsdettena and Münster over a 193-kilometre route which features an undulated profile and it is very likely to finish in a bunch sprint. In past editions of the race, the only thing that can prevent that kind of finale is the weather.

Colombian sprinter Hodeg -who just finished representing his country at the World Championships of Yorkshire- will be the main man of the Belgian squad and will be backed by a very strong squad, trying to get his seventh victory of the season. "Münsterland Giro is always a very nice race, with some hills along the course and usually a mass gallop at the finish," said sports director Wilfried Peeters.

"If this will be the case, then we'll go for a solid result with Alvaro, whom we'll see how he recovered after the Worlds. We also have other strong guys, who can control the race and play an important role going into the business end of the race, so we're really confident."

Deceuninck-Quick-Step's roster for the Münsterland Giro (October 3):

Kasper Asgreen
Alvaro Jose Hodeg Chagui
Mikkel Honoré
Iljo Keisse
Davide Martinelli
Florian Sénéchal
Jannik Steimle
