OPQS to Sparkassen-Munsterland-Giro
Omega Pharma - Quick-Step Cycling Team has announced the selection for Sparkassen-Munsterland-Giro, a 193km race on Oct. 3rd.
Expect for the race to likely end up in a field sprint, as the profile is very much flat and fast — aside from a few cobbles.
"Normally this race is for the sprinters," Sports Director Tom Steels said. "It's not really hard but sometimes we have the wind that can change things. We will start with Ciolek and Fenn as options for the sprint. The team will work for them. This race is also a good occasion for our German riders to show themselves in their home country. We don't ride often in Germany, so it will be a special moment for them to ride in front of their public. Unfortunately Grabsch won't be able to ride because of a fever attack. His place will be taken by Niki Terpstra."
