The Gent-Wevelgem takes place tomorrow and Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka will be starting the 78th edition of this Spring Classic with a strong team, ready to take on the tough Belgian race conditions.

 

The 248km World Tour classic starts in Deinze and then takes the riders through the fields of West-Flanders, incorporating 10 Hellingen, before finishing in Wevelgem. It is one of the few classics that has seen a bunch sprint decide the race on a couple of occasions, but as always, the narrow roads and cobbled streets will once again make for an unpredictable race tomorrow.

 

Boasson Hagen will be the team's protected rider although theNorwegian champion does start tomorrow off the back of a bought of the flu, which kept him out of Friday's E3 Harelbeke. Jay Thomson, Reinardt Janse van Rensburg, Nic Dougall, Mekseb Debesay, Mark Renshaw, Tyler Farrar and Matt Brammeier will be key components to Boasson Hagen’s spring classics success this year and the team are motivated for tomorrows tough race.

 

Sports director Jean Pierre Heynderickx said:

 

"The guys are really looking forward to tomorrow. There is that special feeling about racing the classics in Belgium and everyone is motivated by it. We have a good team for tomorrow but as we know, Gent-Wevelgem is a very difficult race. With the weather forecast tomorrow, it will be even more tricky. It will be important to have our riders in the right place at key moments, we will focus on this and then we will see what options we are left with at the finish tomorrow."
