Oliver Naesen will lead AG2R La Mondiale at the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana, with a team that will also be with him for the classics.

The Belgian rider will start his season once again at the Spanish stage race, and he will be there with the core of riders that will be with him at the spring classics, so they get used to riding with each other and working together. "I'm going to start my year with this Spanish race for the fourth consecutive season, so I'm getting to know the roads well," Naesen explained. "The stage profiles are quite different, it gives you the chance to get in some good workouts.

"We'll be sending to this race a line-up mostly of our classics group for the spring. It will give us a chance to get into a flow of working seamlessly together. And considering all the training camps we did over the winter, I have spent even more time with my brother Lawrence this off season. I am happy to be starting my first race of the year with him. It's going to be really cool. Then with the Clasica de Almeria (February 16) and the Ruta Del Del Sol (February 19-23), I will have the chance to rack up some racing kilometres in good weather conditions before we head to the races in Belgium."

AG2R La Mondiale's roster for the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana (February 5-9):

Oliver Naesen
Tony Galopin
Mathias Frank
Dorian Godon
Julien Duval
Stijn Vandenbergh
Lawrence Naesen
