AG2R Citroën is ready to face Eschborn-Frankfurt, a one-day race that favours the sprinters.

Most of the roster of the French team that will face the German race will be doing it for the first time, with the exception of Damien Touzé, who was at the start line in 2019. Although this race normally favours the fastest men in the pack, it features a rolling course that can also serve as preparation for the upcoming races for the puncheurs like the World Championships and Paris-Roubaix.

"I have trained very well since the Benelux Tour, and I am motivated for the last races of the season," said Michael Schär, who is the most experiened rider in the roster. "In particular, my two objectives are the World Championships and Paris-Roubaix.

"I've never raced the Eschborn-Frankfurt before, but I've watched it on TV, and it's a tactically tough event. You never know if the sprinters will be able to overcome the difficulties at the start of the race. For our team, we will try to take every possible opportunity to get a good result."

AG2R Citroën's line-up for Eschborn-Frankfurt (September 19):

Greg Van Avermaet
Clement Venturini
Damien Touzé
Michael Schär
Nicolas Prodhomme
Clement Berthet
Jaako Hänninen
