Team Sunweb is set to start at the Amstel Gold race with an all-round team that can tackle every scenario. Lucinda Brand will return to the race after finishing in the second position in 2018.

The seventh appointment of the UCI Women's WorldTour will be 126.8 kilometres long from Maastricht to Berg en Terblijt, having the same finish as the men's race, which was also where the World Championships of 2012 finished.

"The parcours for Amstel Gold Race is very similar to the last edition and it is a race that can unfold in a lot of different scenarios," said Sunweb coach Hans Timmermans. "In 2018 it was the attack that went on the Keutenberg which made it to the line, with Lucinda coming second that day. Whereas, in 2017 the winning move went on the Bemelerberg with only 10 kilometres left.

"Therefore we need to be attentive at the front of the race at all times to ensure we are up there in all of the right moves. We arrive with a strong team that likes riding on this type of parcours and can adjust to different race situations as they unfold, which again gives us a good hand to play to search for a top result."

Team Sunweb's roster for the Amstel Gold Race (21st of April):

Lucinda Brand
Janneke Ensing
Leah Kirchmann
Liane Lippert
Floortje Mackaij
Coryn Rivera
