Sam Bennett and Zdenek Stybar are set to captain Deceuninck-Quick-Step at the Tour de Wallonie.

The 47th edition of the Belgian race will have four stages that mix flat and hilly routes in which both leaders of the formation can shine. The fight for the General Classification of the race will be tight, as has been the case in its last two editions.

The Irish national champion will attempt to take advantage of the form he showed at the Vuelta a Burgos while Stybar will be at the start line after showing his strong condition in Strade Bianche and Milano-Sanremo.

"The race has just four stages this year, but will serve as a good preparation for the next part of the season," said sports director Wilfried Peeters. "The plan is to get a victory with Sam, he is capable of doing it, and we have confidence in him. It won't be an easy race, there's a strong field at the start, but we are ready to fight daily and get the result we are coming here for."

Deceuninck-Quick-Step's line-up for Tour de Wallonie (August 16-19):

Sam Bennett
Iljo Keisse
Michael Morkov
Florian Sénéchal
Stijn Steels
Jannik Steimle
Zdenek Stybar
