Team Sunweb is ready to be at the start line of the Binck Bank Tour with a roster led by Soren Kragh Andersen and Jasha Sütterlin.

The BinckBank Tour will take the peloton through parts of the Netherlands and Belgium over five stages that include one individual time trial on the second day. The race -which will take place between the 28th of September and the third of October- will present challenges like the wind and some climbs and Sunweb will look for a good GC position with Kragh Andersen and Sütterlin.

This will be the first race for the Danish rider after taking two victories in the Tour de France and showing his current good shape.

"The BinckBank Tour is a race that is made for good all-round riders, with its tricky parcours," said Sunweb coach Marc Reef. "Every day we need to be sharp if we want to get a good GC result as the wind can play a role at any time and with the varied terrain, we normally see lots of attacking racing. The time trial on stage two and the last two days in the hills of Limburg, the home of our Keep Challenging Center, and Flanders will go a long way in deciding who will win the race.

"We arrive with a strong line up where we look to a good GC result with Jasha and two-time Tour de France stage winner Søren, while Alberto will be our sprinter for the fast finishes. Our line up is completed by Asbjørn, Florian, Max and Nils who will bring the needed support for our leaders in the race."

Sunweb's line-up for the BinckBank Tour (September 29-October 3):

Asbjørn Kragh Andersen
Søren Kragh Andersen
Alberto Dainese
Nils Eekhoff
Max Kanter
Florian Stork
Jasha Sütterlin
