Deceuninck-Quick-Step has chosen a team of seven strong men to fight for the victory at the Cyclassics Hamburg.

The 33rd appointment of the WorldTour calendar will be a 216.7-kilometre race in which the peloton will tackle the famous Waseberg climb four times. The Belgian team has taken the victory of the German race three times and will be at the start like with a roster that includes men capable of facing every scenario.

"We look with confidence towards this race, which suits well our European Champion, Elia (Viviani)," said Sports Director Geert Van Bondt. "Our team is a strong one, with a solid lead-out train – comprising Saba, Michael, Yves and Florian – so that gives us hope we can come out of it with a nice result. There's some pressure, we won't hide that, but also other teams interested in a bunch gallop will be under the same pressure.

"In terms of parcours, as was the case so many times, Waseberg will be the most important point of the race, because things always get nervous there and it's crucial to be in a good position last time up to this climb, before the fast finish in Hamburg."

Deceuninck-Quick-Step's roster for EuroEyes Cyclassics Hamburg (August 28):

Mikkel Honoré
Yves Lampaert
Michael Mørkøv
Fabio Sabatini
Florian Sénéchal
Petr Vakoc
Elia Viviani
