EF Education First-Drapac has its roster and objectives ready for the 2018 season. The team already has plans for the Spring Classics, the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France.

For the Classics, a team will be built around Sep Vanmarcke while Rigoberto Uran will captain the squad once more at the Tour de France. "Those are the obvious areas of excitement," said EF Education First-Drapac's CEO Jonathan Vaughters.

"Sep wasn’t healthy last year, and I’m eager to see what he can do at full strength in the spring. Rigo is uniquely suited to this Tour. It’s a dynamic parcours with so many different elements. Rigo is an adaptable, Darwinian rider, and we hope he can be very competitive."

The team also wants to start fighting for the final sprints and will have a new leader for the Giro d'Italia. "There’s something new for us in Dan McLay and Sacha Modolo and the support crew we’ve built up around them," Vaughters commented. "For the first time, in a long time, we’ll be competitive in the sprints. I’m excited about that. Then there’s seeing what Mike Woods can do at the Giro. Those are the four things I’m most looking forward to with this group of riders."
