"We come here with a strong sprinter in Nikias and to aim for a top 10 finish. The change of route in this year's finale, making it less technical, could increase our chances to attain this result."

Giant-Alpecin have announced the line-up for Scheldeprijs.

 

Sandwiched between Ronde van Vlaanderen and Paris-Roubaix is Scheldeprijs, a great opportunity for the sprinters to have a clear shot at victory and for others an ideal way to fine-tune their condition towards the weekend. The 207.8km race starts in Antwerp with a 157.4km loop, then the riders tackling three finishing circuits of 16.8km each to finish in Schoten. The race will also see the start of Lars' road season, his first race with the WorldTour team after his cyclo-cross campaign.

"Scheldeprijs is an important race for the team and we will focus on a sprint finish as this is the most likely outcome," explained coach Arthur van Dongen. "We come here with a strong sprinter in Nikias and to aim for a top 10 finish. The change of route in this year's finale, making it less technical, could increase our chances to attain this result. 

"On the final circuit, we also have to remain in a good position during the tough cobblestone section of Broekstraat which is 1.7km long. After that, the sprint preparation starts and we need to be in position to battle for a good result."
