Team Sunweb is set to start at the Vuelta a España with a main focus in the fast stages. The roster has been built around Phil Bauhaus for the final sprints.

Although the team will focus on stage victories, Wilco Kelderman will be back to racing and ready to explore the GC possibilities. "Phil will be our sprinter at the Vuelta whilst we aim for a result in the sprints," said Sunweb coach Aike Visbeek. "We’re very pleased to have Wilco at the start, which could be considered a small miracle after another difficult period with recovering from a complicated injury.

"He has worked hard to come back, but we don’t know how stable his level will be throughout the three weeks of racing. We’ll have to take a day by day approach with the aim to keep him in the GC and see where he stands going into the third week. We’re also excited to have three riders making their grand tour debut with Jai, Michael and Martijn. Heading to Spain will be great for their long-term development and we’re looking forward to seeing what they do with the opportunity."

Team Sunweb's line-up for the Vuelta a España (25th of August to 16th of September):

Phil Bauhaus
Simon Geschke
Jai Hindley
Johannes Fröhlinger
Wilco Kelderman
Michael Storer
Mike Teunissen
Martijn Tusveld
