Five-time stage winner André Greipel and European Time Trial Champion Victor Campenaerts will spearhead Lotto Soudal’s attack at September’s OVO Energy Tour of Britain, with their six-man line-up also featuring Nottinghamshire’s James Shaw.

Greipel, who has previously won stages in Blackpool, Great Yarmouth, London, Ipswich and Castle Douglas, is one of cycling’s most decorated riders, having claimed over 150 professional victories in his career. Also among the 36-year-old German’s successes are 11 Tour de France and seven Giro d’Italia stage wins.

Having retained the European Time Trial Championships title in Glasgow last week, Campanerts returns to UK next month to compete in a race in which he finished fourth overall (just 13 seconds behind his then team-mate Lars Boom) in 2017.
