Alexander Kristoff and Fernando Gaviria are set to lead UAE-Team Emirates at Dwars door Vlaanderen. The team wants to show once again a good work by taking a good result at the Belgian race.

Only days after his victory in Gent-Wevelgem, Kristoff will be back on the road to also finish off the preparations for the Tour of Flanders. The Norwegian will co-lead the roster with Colombian Fernando Gaviria, who will start in the Belgian race for the third time in his career.

Dwars door Vlaanderen is set to start in Roeselare and finish in Waregem and will be 182.8 kilometres long, over a route that features eleven climbs and four cobblestone sectors. "I think the Dwars door Vlaanderen is suited to the team's strengths, and in particular, to Fernando Gaviria," said sports director Allan Peiper.

"It's an intense race, but not that complicated like many of the other races in Belgium. So, we are going to focus on taking Fernando to the line to fight for his chance."

UAE-Team Emirates' roster for Dwars door Vlaanderen (3rd of April):

Sven Erik Bystrøm
Fernando Gaviria
Alexander Kristoff
Vegard Stake Laengen
Marco Marcato
Jasper Philipsen
Oliviero Troia
