Edvald Boasson Hagen will be once more the leader of Dimension Data in the classic season, this time at the Scheldeprijs.

The race will be 202.3 kilometres long between Terneuzen in the Netherlands and Schoten in Belgium, with a course that normally fits the fast men, which is shown by past champions like Fabio Jakobsen, Marcel Kittel and Mark Cavendish. But this time the wind has the potential to change the race and a strong team can make a difference.

The Norwegian ride will be backed by a strong roster that includes riders like Mark Renshaw. "Really excited to be heading back to Belgium for Scheldeprijs, it felt great to race again in De Panne and hopefully I have better legs than in my first race," Renshaw commented.

"I know the race very well having ridden many times before. It will be nice to help Edvald and the guys who have been racing the last few weeks in Belgium for a good team result."

Dimension Data's roster for the Scheldeprijs (10th of April):

Edvald Boasson Hagen
Ryan Gibbons
Reinardt Janse van Rensburg
Mark Renshaw
Julien Vermote
Jay Thomson
Rasmus Tiller
