Team Sunweb is set to start in the Hammer Stavanger with the objective of taking the final victory after finishing second in the 2018 edition of the event.

The first stop of the Hammer Series in 2019 is in Stavanger, Norway, where the teams of five will face three events. The first day, they will go through an undulating course to take climb points, while the second event will be over a flat route in which the fast men will have the chance to take points for their teams, and the last will be a team time trial on a rolling course.

"Hammer Series is a really important race for us as a team and after finishing second here last year, we're even more motivated and hungry to take the win this year," said Sunweb's coach Arthur van Dongen. "The kick off in Stavanger later this week will be a tough first test, but we've got a great team to hopefully bring us a solid result.

"We aim to be in a strong position after the Climb and the Sprint, ultimately going for the top result in the Chase on the final day. Our huge motivator is the thought of doing it completely as a team, and getting to stand on the podium all together as one."

Team Sunweb's roster for Hammer Stavanger (24th to 26th of April):

Søren Kragh Andersen
Nikias Arndt
Marc Hirschi
Casper Pedersen
Michael Storer
Max Walscheid
