Team Sunweb will aim at stage victories in the Tour of Romandie with Michael Matthews, Laurens Ten Dam and Louis Vervaeke.

The team will tackle the nine stages of the Swiss race with the main objective of taking stage victories. "Tour de Romandie will be held over six stages with a short 4-kilometre prologue, a 9.9 kilometre hilly TT, one high mountain stage and three semi-difficult ‘classic’ stages," said coach Luke Roberts.

"We can expect some aggressive and unpredictable racing with the profiles not directly suited to pure sprinters or pure climbers."

Matthews, Ten Dam and Vervaeke will face each stage suitable for their talents with an eye on the victory. "Our main goal will be to pick up stage results, Michael will have some opportunities with strong support from Simon (Geschke), Lennard (Kämna), Tom (Stamsnijder) and Michael (Storer)," Roberts commented.

"When the race goes into the high mountains Laurens and Louis will be there to fly the flag for Team Sunweb, once again exploring stage possibilities."

Sunweb's line-up for Tour de Romandie (24th-29th of April):

Laurens ten Dam
Simon Geschke
Lennard Kämna
Michael Matthews
Tom Stamsnijder
Michael Storer
Louis Vervaeke
