Team Sunweb has announced its line-up for the upcoming Strade Bianche in which Tiesj Benoot and Michael Matthews will be the captains.

Just hours after it was announced that the Italian one-day race -along with Tirreno-Adriatico and Milano-Sanremo- will continue with their programs as scheduled despite the threat of the Coronavirus in Italy, Team Sunweb has announced a strong roster to fight for the victory.

"Strade Bianche is always an exciting race, and we are aiming for a strong result with Tiesj, who is a former winner here, and Michael," said coach Marc Reef. "They both have a good period of preparation behind them, with Tiesj riding strongly in the opening weekend in Belgium and Michael feeling good after an altitude block.

"Both are ready to play a role in the race that is famous for the sections of dirt road and steep hills throughout the parcours. Robert was part of the final group last year and he will look to support them deep into the final, alongside the rest of the team."

Team Sunweb's roster for Strade Bianche (March 7):

Tiesj Benoot
Mark Donovan
Felix Gall
Michael Matthews
Joris Nieuwenhuis
Robert Power
Ilan Van Wilder
