Team Sunweb is set to start at Il Lombardia with a strong roster that will have young star Sam Oomen as its captain.

The 23-year-old has had an outstanding season in which he has reached top-ten positions of the overall classifications of races like the Giro d'Italia, the Tour de Suisse and the Tour de Pologne.

"The final Monument of the season; our goal here is to go for a top result with Sam," said Sunweb's coach Arthur van Dongen. "It's his favourite race so it will be a special day for him to be our leader, especially with such a solid team around him.

"We'll aim to bring him into as fresh as possible condition to the two climbs in the middle, as well as when the race heads towards Como before the finish. Our goal is on Sam's development as a leader and with Wilco and Michael we have two experienced riders who can help support this goal."

Team Sunweb's complete roster for Il Lombardia (13th of October):

Chris Hamilton
Jai Hindley
Lennard Kämna
Wilco Kelderman
Michael Matthews
Sam Oomen
Michael Storer
