– Marco Marcato (Ita)
– Sebastian Molano (Col)
– Rui Oliveira (Por)

Jasper Philipsen: “After the Tour de France, I recovered for a week, then returned to training with the intent to prepare well for the second part of the season. I want to really test myself at the Binckbank Tour, as it’s a race that suits my characteristics, but I know it will be difficult as the level will be high and because my form still has to improve a bit more “.
