Deceuninck-QuickStep will end their 2019 Belgian campaign Saturday at Binche-Chimay-Binche, but they'll do so without the services of Colombian Sprinter Alvaro Hodeg, who was injured in a crash during the final of Tour de l'Eurométropole on October 5.

Hodeg earned Deceuninck-QuickStep's 66th win of the season earlier this month at Sparkassen Münsterland Giro in Germany and was in the running for the team's 67th win in l'Eurométropole when he  clipped a barrier in the finishing straight and crashed hard. The 23-year-old suffered a left forearm fracture, a right shoulder fracture and two fractured ribs.

The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
