Sprinting at the Sparkassen Münsterland Giro?
In early October the pro peloton traditionally finds their way to the Sparkassen Münsterland Giro, as always one of the last races of the year.
Sparkassen Münsterland Giro (UCI 1.Pro)
03.10 | Enschede - Münster | 188.5 km
The Sparkassen Münsterland Giro is a very straightforward race. The start of this German race is actually just across the border in The Netherlands, more specifically Enschede. From there, the riders will take on a 188.5 kilometers course that leads them through the Münsterland region, before finishing in the city of Münster. Also in this 15th edition of the race, the organization added some climbs to the route, like the Coesfelder Berg (0.8 km at 5.8%) and the Daruper Berg (1 km at 5.8%), which offers the riders some opportunities to avoid a bunch sprint. This will, however, be very difficult as in recent years the race was won by fast guys like Álvaro Hodeg, Sam Bennett, John Degenkolb, Tom Boonen, André Greipel and Marcel Kittel. At the Sparkassen Münsterland Giro Leopard Pro Cycling will fight against amongst others five WorldTour teams such as Deceuninck-Quick Step and BORA-hansgrohe. The race can be followed via Eurosport.
