UAE Team Emirates for Tour of Flanders
The team will be completely built around the European champion, Alexander Kristoff, for the Tour of Flanders on Sunday.
The only Norwegian to win the Belgian monument in Flanders, taking the trophy in 2015 when he topped Niki Terpstra in a two-up sprint.
“I won’t be the favourite for Flanders, but the recent classics here in the north pushed my level higher, so I hope to be one of the protagonists,” said Alexander Kristoff.
“It doesn’t matter if I arrive at Flanders without any ‘big’ win because this is ‘the race’ and anything and everything can happen.”
Roster: Alexander Kristoff (Nor), Filippo Ganna (Ita), Ben Swift (GB), Sven Erik Bystrøm (Nor), Marco Marcato (Ita), Oliviero Troia (Ita), Simone Consonni (Ita).
Sports Directors: Mario Scirea (Ita), Philippe Mauduit (Fra).
