Greg Van Avermaet will continue his lead up to the next Monument, Ronde van Vlaanderen, by racing at Record Bank E3 Harelbeke and Gent-Wevelgem – In Flanders Fields this week.

A win on home soil would give Van Avermaet an advantage for the next Monuments, Sports Director Fabio Baldato said.

“Greg has been on the podium at both E3 Harelbeke and Gent-Wevelgem in the past, and we know he is in even better shape this year. To win one of these races is a big confidence boost ahead of Ronde van Vlaanderen, and as Greg knows the roads so well, we know he has a good chance,” Baldato explained.

“The riders lining up at the two races change slightly, but both make up very strong teams that are ready to work in support of Greg. The experienced riders like Martin Elmiger, Daniel Oss, Manuel Quinziato and Francisco Ventoso are crucial when it comes to these Classics. It’s also a great opportunity for our younger riders to gain more experience.”

After a successful start to the season Van Avermaet is confident in his form ahead of the two UCI WorldTour races.

“I’m looking forward to E3 Harelbeke and Gent-Wevelgem as I hope to come away with a win. I’m really confident with my form as I was feeling good at Tirreno-Adriatico and Milan-San Remo, and if everything goes well I’m ready to do a good result in preparation for Ronde van Vlaanderen,” Van Avermaet said.

“These are the last races that I will do before Ronde van Vlaanderen and Paris-Roubaix so it’s important to give it everything, and work well together as a team.”
