Juliette Labous is set to captain Sunweb's General Classification ambitions at the Amgen Tour of California. Coryn Rivera will be the designated rider for the sprints.

The fifth edition of the American race will have three stages and will be held between the 16th and the 18th of May. Sunweb will take a team in which three riders can make the difference in various terrains and each of them will fight for their position.

"With the changes in parcours at the Tour of California, the stages could be quite unpredictable," said Sunweb's coach Hans Timmermans. "Stage two and the finish on Mount Baldy should see the best climber win but the other two days depends on the racing style within the peloton. We arrive with a strong team and bring a mix of riders who can go for a good result in all three stages.

"We will look for a good GC result with Juliette, while Coryn will be the rider the team will set up for the sprints. Leah will get more of a free role as she can sprint for a good result but also hang on for a strong finish on Mount Baldy. That's dependent on the race situation and we'll decide that through good communication and teamwork throughout the stages."

Team Sunweb's roster for the Amgen Tour of California empowered with SRAM (16th to 18th of May):

Susanne Andersen
Leah Kirchmann
Juliette Labous
Pernille Mathiesen
Coryn Rivera
Julia Soek
