Bahrain-Merida will face the Fleche Wallonne with a selection of strong riders that can make the difference in the hard course.

The team will have Enrico Gasparotto and the Izagirre brothers for the final. "It will be an elimination race and as usual the two last ascents will make the difference," commented Sports Director Rik Verbrugghe.

"We will see how the other teams will manage the race, but we have Enrico for the final together with the two Izagirre brothers."

After finishing in the third position of the Amstel Gold Race, Gasparotto is ready for the next challenge. "In 2016 I finished fifth and I would like to do even better! I have several solutions: to attack on the Côte de Cherave or wait for the Mur," he explained.

"I'm calm and I think I'll have to pay attention to Valverde and Alaphilippe the two real favourites for this Fléche."

Bahrain-Merida's line-up for the Fleche Wallonne (17th of April):

Vincenzo Nibali
Ion Izagirre
Gorka Izagirre
Enrico Gasparotto
Hermann Pernsteiner
Franco Pellizotti
Grega Bole
