Italian rider Fausto Masnada has made a mid-season switch from CCC Team to Deceuninck-QuickStep. The move was agreed last week but, with the 26-year-old competing in the Critérium du Dauphiné, the signing was held until after the completion of the race.

Masnada is likely to ride the Giro d'Italia later in the season, and it was hoped that he would support Remco Evenepoel until the Belgian crashed and fractured his pelvis at Il Lombardia.
