Team Sunweb has chosen its roster to start in Strade Bianche, the opening race of the Women's World Tour calendar. The Dutch team will have three main riders that can fight for the final victory.

The race will start and finish in Sienna and will be 136 kilometres long. The riders will face a twisty and undulating course with punchy hills and a bit more than 30 kilometres of gravel roads, which will appear in eight sectors, which the men will tackle later on the day.

"Strade Bianche is certainly one of the most exciting one-day races of the season and as the opening of the Women's WorldTour, it's set to be an exciting race," commented Sunweb's coach Nicolas Marche.

"The unique gravel roads always provide a lot of good action which is exactly what we like as a team. We go to Toscana really motivated having various good cards to play with Liane, Lucinda and Janneke all riders that we expect to play a part in the final."

Team Sunweb's roster for Strade Bianche (9th of March):

Lucinda Brand
Janneke Ensing
Leah Kirchmann
Juliette Labous
Liane Lippert
Coryn Rivera
