CCC-Liv is set to be led by Ashleigh Moolman Pasio and Marianne Vos at the Tour of Flanders. The team aims to make a race hard and take advantage of every situation.

The Ronde van Vlaanderen will be the sixth appointment of the UCI Women's WorldTour and is one of the most expected Belgian classics of the calendar. The race will start and finish in Oudenaarde and will cover a 159.2-kilometre route that includes four cobblestone sectors and ten climbs, that include the famous Kapelmuur, the Taaienberg, the Oude Kwaremont and the Paterberg.

The South African champion Moolman Pasio finished just out of the podium in the 2018 edition of the race and will aim to improve from that result, while Vos already knows what it takes to win the race, as she did it in 2013.

"Marianne Vos has already won the Ronde van Vlaanderen in the past and Ashleigh Moolman Pasio was fourth here last year," commented sports director Jeroen Blijlevens. "Both have been showing for weeks that they are in good shape and they know that they have a strong team behind them.

"We want to show something in the final. Ashleigh can make the race hard. And Marianne needs to be attentive, jumping along when the best riders break away. She has a good sprinter’s legs and can rely on that when she is in the lead with a group in Oudenaarde."

CCC-Liv's line-up for the Tour of Flanders/Ronde van Vlaanderen (7th of April):

Jeanne Korevaar
Evy Kuijpers
