Simon Yates and Lucas Hamilton are set to lead Team BikeExchange in the Volta a Catalunya.

The pair will be fighting for a good General Classification spot in the 100th edition of the Spanish race and will have with them a roster that an support them in their objectives, as they also have their own strenghts to fight for the individual stages.

"I had a change of plan, originally I was only going to do Tirreno and then Tour of the Alps but in Tirreno I felt like I missed some racing, some race rhythm, so it looked like a good idea to come and race Catalunya to try and find that intensity and take another step forward," said Yates. "We have a very strong team there so I think as a group, as a team, we can do a good ride. I had good form in Tirreno so we will see what we can do."

"I am looking forward to racing Catalunya, it is in the region that I spend a lot of time training, so I look forward to getting stuck in," added Hamilton. "I have never done this race but from all accounts it looks really tough, so I'm happy to try and get another good stage race under the belt soon after Paris-Nice.

"I learnt a lot riding the GC for the first-time last week and now I'm really looking forward to carrying that momentum into Catalunya and having another crack and we will have a really strong team in the climbs."
