Oliver Naesen is set to be the leader of the AG2R La Mondiale for the upcoming one-day races: Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Kuurne-Bruxelles-Kuurne.

The Belgian rider will have the support a strong roster to aim for a high result in both races. "The first Belgian classics arrive with the Omloop Heet Nieuwsblad in the UCI WorldTour and then the next day with Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne," said the team's sports director Julien Jurdie.

"We are coming to a course that we know by heart, and with high ambitions focused on Oliver Naesen, and indeed the entire AG2R La Mondiale team. This opening weekend is hotly awaited by our Flanderian experts. If the forecast stays the same, we will certainly be expecting difficult conditions on the cobblestones. But we are ready for everything, and we hope that this will be the start of a beautiful 2020 campaign that will culminate with Paris-Roubaix."
