Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates) is set to continue his preparation for the Classics at the Clasica de Almeria.

The Norwegian rider will tackle the 1.Pro race with the objective of continuing his road to the Classic season. Kristoff comes to the race after finishing the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana, where he got the chance to try in the final sprints -where he took two top-five positions- and was part of the team that supported Tadej Pogacar's victory.

"The season has started well, I had a good week in Valenciana and felt strong throughout the race," said the rider. "Almería is a finish that should suit me well so hopefully I can step up from last week and get closer to the win or maybe even take it. It's a new race for the team, but we know what to expect. The line-up this year looks quite strong and that makes it good preparation heading into the classics."

UAE Team Emirates' line-up for the Clasica Almeria (February 16):

Tom Bohli
Vegard Stake Laengen
Alexander Kristoff
Yousif Mirza
Valerio Conti
David de la Cruz
Edward Ravasi
