The Belgian team are ranked number one in the world – and their line-up for this year’s race has quality in abundance. Fernando Gaviria has already won 34 races in his fledgling career, with Julian Alaphilippe’s impressive 2018 has seen him claim victory in Fléche Wallonne, Clasica Ciclista San Sebastian, two Tour de France stage wins and the race’s King of the Mountains jersey.

Bob Jungels is the reigning Luxembourg Road and Time Trial champion, and won the historic Liége-Bastogne-Liége in April, while second-year pro Max Schachmann won Stage 18 of the Giro d’Italia atop Prato Nevoso earlier this year.
