Team Sunweb has selected its roster for the 2019 Setmana Ciclista Valenciana. Floortje Mackaij and Coryn Rivera are the chosen riders for GC and stage wins.

The Dutch team is ready to start its season at the Spanish race and it has two riders to lead it in the victory aspirations. "Our first race of the season, we're looking forward to opening our year on a high note at Valenciana," said coach Hans Timmermans. "In this race, Floortje will have her first opportunity to explore her GC chances and Coryn will have the sprinters role.

"Both have a super strong team around them to support these goals. The first day is already an important one for the GC, but it could also come to a reduced sprint so we'll bring both Floortje and Coryn into position for the final climb here. The second stage looks set to be a sprint day and the third will be another important day for the GC. The final stage looks to be a little more open, so we will once again focus on both Floortje and Coryn here.

Sunweb has been in the usual training camp in Spain and has had the change to recon some stages. "We've just come out of a really good training block in Calpe and were able to do some recons of the race, so we're totally prepared and really motivated for a good race," he added.

"It's also Susanne and Janneke's first race for the team so that brings more motivation for a good race."

Team Sunweb's roster for the Setmana Ciclista Valenciana (21st to 24th of February):

Susanne Andersen
Janneke Ensing
Juliette Labous
Floortje Mackaij
Pernille Mathiesen
Coryn Rivera
Julia Soek
