CCC-Liv is set to start at the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad with a strong and versatile team that can be ready for every scenario of the race.

The opening race of the Belgian classics season is an important moment for the participating teams. CCC-Liv has chosen a strong roster to tackle the cobbled race in Belgium.

"The Omloop Het Nieuwsblad remains special because it is the first classic," said sports director Jeroen Blijlevens. "At the same time, you notice that the sequence of the season is somewhat changing.

"There have already been several races, so some of the pressure is already off. We, for instance, have already raced in Australia and Spain. However, the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad is still a race where you want to perform. It is a first indicator."

The riders of the team have what it takes to face every scenario the race could develop into. "Various scenarios are possible in the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad," he explained. "A finish with a larger group of riders is a possibility, just as last year, depending on the wind.

"Another possibility is that in the middle or towards the end, a group breaks away on the Wall of Geraardsbergen or the Bosberg, which is strong enough to keep an advantage until the finish line. In case of the latter, we should be at the front with our strong team."
