Bahrain Victorious has announced the line-up that will face the Tour de la Provence, its first race of the season.

The team is set to start in the sixth edition of the French race with a versatile roster that includes riders suitable for each of the conditions of the stages. The competition will include a mountain-top finish on the Mont Ventoux, where the cyclists can test their legs for the first time on the climb that will feature in the Tour de France.

"We had a super good training camp with the whole team, and now we are looking forward to scoring results in the first race of the season," said Bahrain Victorious Sports Director Rolf Aldag. "We will consider every Stage like a one day race and fight for the win. Phil will fight on the sprint stages, Dylan on the hilly stages and, Jack, Dylan, and Wout during the GC showdown halfway up to the Mont Ventoux."

Phil Bauhaus will be in charge of the stages that have a bunch finale -1 and 4, Dylan Teuns will go for the second stage, and Wout Poels, Jack Haig and Teuns will fight for the Mont Ventoux victory. "I had a good winter and successful training camp with the team," commented Poels. "I believe we have a strong line-up, and I’m curious to see how the first race of the year will turn out."

"I am excited but also a little nervous," added Haig. "That will be my first race with the new team, and it’s also a race I haven’t done before. I think it will be a good race to know how the team works and how I fit into the team. It’s also some rehearsal for some of the big races coming up, especially the UAE Tour, which will be my first race directly after Tour de la Provence."

Bahrain Victorious' line-up for the Tour de la Provence (February 11-14):

Phil Bauhaus
Jack Haig
Heinrich Haussler
Gino Mäder
Wout Poels
Dylan Teuns
Fred Wright
