Team Sunweb is ready to start at the Volta ao Algarve and the Tour des Alpes Maritimes et du Var with versatile rosters eager to kick off the season.

The Portuguese race will be held between the 19th and the 23rd of February and Sunweb will be there with a line-up that can fight for stage victories. "We head to Algarve with a squad that are capable of good results in the sprint stages so we will look to bring Cees (Bol) into position on those days, and go all in for a solid time trial on the final day," said coach Matt Winston.

"We've also got a few debutants with Ilan and Jasha racing for the first time with us as well as Nils, who starts his first race with the pros after being promoted from the Development program. With it being the first race of the season for most of the guys we are looking forward to making it a good one and starting strongly."

The Tour des Alpes Maritimes et du Var will have three stages and the team will aim for a good GC position with Marc Hirschi. "After our European season got underway at the Tour de La Provence last week, we continue our time in France with the Tour des Alpes Maritimes et du Var," commented Arjan Ribbers, Sunweb coach.

"Once again we want to race aggressively and be on the front foot throughout the race, chasing stage success. Marc arrives as our main card to play, with the rest of the guys protecting him and looking to set him up for the stage finales. Felix makes his debut for us after being promoted from the Development program, Mark also starts in the team's colours for the first time and it is nice to have Chris back after his early season injury."
