Lucinda Brand and Floortje Mackaij will lead Team Sunweb at the Tour of Flanders. If the race comes down to a final sprint, Coryn Rivera will be the card of the team at that moment.

The 16th edition of the Ronde van Vlaanderen will be 159.2 kilometres long on a route that features four cobblestone sectors and ten climbs, including the iconic Oude Kwaremont and the Paterberg in the last 17 kilometres, which will definitely make a difference in the race ahead of the finale.

"Ronde van Vlaanderen is one of the most exciting races of the year with cobbles and hills right from the start," said Team Sunweb coach Nicolas Marche. "We will arrive at the race with a lot of ambition with good cards to play in different scenarios. If the race is very aggressive and attritional then we have Lucinda and Floortje who have shown to be in good form and they should be near the head of the race.

"If it is a little bit more conservative because of a headwind, then we have a previous winner with Coryn and we'll look to go for a result with her as our sprinter."

Team Sunweb's line-up for the Tour of Flanders (7th of April):

Lucinda Brand
Leah Kirchmann
Liane Lippert
Floortje Mackaij
Coryn Rivera
Julia Soek
