“We’re proud to have 10 strong riders at the start on Sunday,” OPQS Sport Director Rik Van Slycke said. “This kind of parcours suits several of our riders very well. We can be protagonists whether the race ends in a breakaway, or a bunch sprint. Almost every rider selected has at least one victory this season, and several have been on a parcours like this. The OPQS riders selected include veterans such as Tom Boonen — a former world champion — and also young guys like Petr Vakoc, who is racing in his first professional World Road Championship. We want to wish good luck to all our riders from seven different countries, which demonstrates the Belgian roots and international impact of OPQS."
