Team FDJ line-up for Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne

Neues aus der Radportwelt – jeden Tag aktuell unter

This weekend, the UCI World Tour FDJ cycling team will be at the start of the Belgian Classics opening weekend with, on Saturday 24 the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and on Sunday 25 Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne. Two slightly different line-ups to support the French Champion Arnaud Démare:

Frédéric Guesdon, FDJ sports director for the Belgian weekend: “For those two races, Arnaud Démare will be our natural leader. We built a team around him to support him and make sure he is not isolated in the finish, like it happened sometimes before. That being said, we noticed those last years that the riders tend to reveal themselves earlier and earlier on the Classics. It means we will have to be present at the front and this could be the role of riders like Ignatas Konovalovas or Olivier Le Gac. While being a nice option if anything happens to Arnaud, Marc Sarreau will be back in the train for Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne, the more suitable to a sprint finish. Omloop Het Nieuwsblad is usually more open, it might enable another guy to have his own chance”.
