ASO announces Classics wild cards, opens door for Wout van Aert at Paris-Roubaix

The ASO has unveiled the Wild cards for its upcoming spring classics Paris-Roubaix, Fleche Wallone and Liege-Bastogne-Liege.

What immediately stands out is the inclusion of Veranda's Willems-Crelan for Paris-Roubaix, which allows Belgian cyclocross star Wout van Aert to take part and test his skills at the highest level.

Unsurprisingly, the ASO mostly focused on French and Belgian teams for the three races. The only exception is Irish formation Aqua Blue Sport, which has received an invitation for Liege-Bastogne-Liege.
