Kasper Asgreen will lead our squad at the 68th edition of the French race.

For the second year in a row, our squad will be at the start of the Quatre Jours de Dunkerque, a race that will have a little bit of everything for everyone. The sprinters are sure to get plenty of opportunities, but the Classics specialists are the ones who should once again fight for the general classification. More than a dozen cobblestone sectors on stage four, followed twenty-four hours later by the tough Cassel stage, featuring almost twenty climbs and taking in 2600 vertical meters, will give them the terrain needed to make the difference

One of the most successful teams of the season, Soudal Quick-Step will take on the demanding six-day race with a seven-man squad comprising 2021 Ronde van Vlaanderen winner Kasper Asgreen – who last year finished runner-up here after a solid outing – Ayco Bastiaens, Antoine Huby, Fausto Masnada, Martin Svrcek, Warre Vangheluwe and Jordi Warlop.

“We travel to Dunkerque with a strong and motivated team, and on paper we’ll have a couple of chances of getting some good results there. The wind could play an important role in the first part of the race, before the terrain becomes harder and more selective towards the end of the week. We’ll try to be among the protagonists, like we always do”, said sports director Klaas Lodewyck.
