“With these eight riders, we send a strong selection to the Tour”, says sports manager Kurt Van de Wouwer. “Caleb Ewan has already won five stages in the Tour de France and wants to add one or more in the coming edition. The past two years, he has had his share of bad luck at the Tour and also the past months haven’t been going perfectly but he still remains one of the fastest riders of the bunch. He is our biggest chance to take a stage win. That is why we have surrounded him really well with Jasper De Buyst, who has shown his excellent shape the past weeks and Jacopo Guarnieri as important element in the sprint train. Florian and Frederik their task is to launch that train in a good position, they will also get the chance to go on the attack in the other stages as well.”

Pascal Eenkhoorn, Victor Campenaerts and Maxim Van Gils are the opportunists in the team. “On the more tough terrain or in the transition stages, they are our main assets”, says Van de Wouwer. “Victor has suffered a serious injury in the spring but worked hard to come back and showed an excellent shape in the Dauphiné. So he deserved his selection there and we are convinced that he can also show himself at the Tour.”

With Maxim Van Gils and Pascal Eenkhoorn, two riders are making their debut in the Tour de France. “Pascal has gathered the necessary experience throughout the years and will now get a taste of the Tour de France, where he can go his own chance in the tougher stages”, explains Van de Wouwer, “Maxim is with 23 years old the youngest rider of our selection and will start without stress. Following his excellent Ardennes campaign in the spring, we are confident that he can also show his talent in the Tour.”
