Team Sunweb takes a versatile roster to the Amstel Gold Race with three candidates to fight for the victory.

The team adapts to the new conditions of the race and will be prepared for every scenario. "This year Amstel Gold Race offers a new final which will make for a more open race where the opportunists will have better chances," said coach Aike Visbeek.

"With the changes, the final will start with the Kruisberg, but because of the changed final, the Keuteberg will possibly now become the breaking point for the final. Our focus will be to protect our riders for the final during the first 200 kilometres, and from then on good positioning will be crucial."

Søren Kragh Andersen, Michael Matthews and Simon Schenke will be the three men with opportunities to fight for the victory. "Our goal is to bring several riders into the final and with Søren, Michael and Simon, who is back in action after recovering from a fractured collarbone, we have cards to play," the coach explained.

"We bring a lot of experience with Johannes and Laurens who know every road in Limburg which will also be of benefit to us during the race."

Sunweb's complete roster for Amstel Gold Race (15th of April):

Søren Kragh Andersen
Laurens ten Dam
Johannes Fröhlinger
Simon Geschke
Lennard Kämna
Michael Matthews
Edward Theuns
