Sonny Colbrelli and Matej Mohoric will be the captains of Bahrain Merida in the E3 BinckBank Classic and Gent-Wevelgem.

The E3 BinckBank Classic will be 204 kilometres long and the 81st edition of Gent-Wevelgem will be held over a 251-kilometre route. "We have a good team for both races with two leaders Sonny Colbrelli and Matej Mohoric and great quality riders such as Ivan Cortina and Dylan Teuns," said sports director Tristan Hoffman. "The experience of riders like (Heinrich) Haussler, (Kristijan) Koren and (Marcel) Sieberg will be a great help for our boys."

Mohoric finished in the fifth position of Milano-Sanremo and is ready to tackle the next challenges. "It's my first time and I'm very happy to race on roads that are so important for cycling," the rider commented.

"My condition is growing day by day and I expect to be competitive both at Harelbeke and next Sunday. The Milan-Sanremo gave me the directions I was looking for and I hope to achieve a good result."

Colbrelli was also part of the Milano-Sanremo roster and looks forward to the northern races. "The E3 route is the one that best suits my characteristics, while the Gent-Wevelgem is perhaps more suited to sprinters," the Italian explained.

"I was not very lucky a month ago in Belgium and I hope to make up for it and find the perfect day."
