Michael Matthews is set to be the leader of Team Sunweb at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. The opening race of the Flemish Spring Classic season will have the Kragh Andersen brothers riding together in the team for the first time.

Sunweb is ready to start the classic season with the Belgian race in which Matthews is expected to play a starring role. "We have Michael as our leader in the opener of the Flemish Spring Classic season at Omloop Het Nieuwsblad this weekend," said coach Marc Reef. "We expect him to play a role in the final of the race, with the final support of both Casper and Søren, who showed his great shape this last week in the Algarve.

"Michael will take the experience of last year with him, where unfortunately a crash took him out of the race after being in the first group leading up towards the Muur. Both Jan and Asbjørn make their debut for the team and it will also be the first time the Kragh Andersen brothers ride together for Team Sunweb, so it will be a special weekend for them."

Team Sunweb's complete roster for Omloop Het Nieuwsblad (2nd of March):

Asbjørn Kragh Andersen
Søren Kragh Andersen
Jan Bakelants
Roy Curvers
Michael Matthews
Casper Pedersen
Martijn Tusveld
