Trek-Segafredo is set to have 18 of its riders competing in the upcoming road races of the World Championships of Flanders 2021.

A total of 18 riders of the formation will be at the start lines of the Elite Women and Elite Men road races -on September 25 and 26, respectively: Ten women and eight men that will be representing eleven countries.

The women's race will be 157.7 kilometres long over a route that will link Antwerp and Leuven and that features no less than 20 challenging climbs and cobblestone stretches that will test the legs of the riders. Lizzie Deignan will be representing Great Britain and the newly crowned TT world champion Ellen van Dijk will do it with the Netherlands, trying to get a double title on a terrain that she likes and suits her well.

Lucinda Brand will also be representing the Dutch team just before she starts with the cyclocross season. Italian Champion Elisa Longo Borghini will also be at the start line of the competition and also as one of the favourites.

The other riders that will be at the women's race are Audrey Cordon-Ragot with the French team, Chloe Hosking and Lauretta Hanson representing Australia, Amalie Dideriksen with Denmark, and Americans Ruth Winder and Tayler Wiles.

The men's competition will be on September 26 and will be 268.3 kilometres long also between Antwerp and Leuven. The peloton will face 42 climbs, including a challenging uphill finish, cobblestones and narrow roads, having the main features of the Belgian iconic races.

One of the riders of Trek-Segafredo that can surprise the pack is Jasper Stuyven, who not only shines in this kind of routes but will also have the motivation of riding at home. The winner of the 2019 World Championships Mads Pedersen will be with a strong Danish team and will try to repeat the feat and get to wear once again the Rainbow Jersey.

Bauke Mollema will be supporting the leader of the Netherlands team, Mathieu van der Poel, for as long as possible because cobbles aren't his favourite terrain. American Quinn Simmons has shown his attacking style during the past Vuelta a España, and he will likely show it in the race, going through one of his favourite terrains: the cobblestones.

Toms Skujins and Emilis Liepins will be part of the Latvian team, the formation of Luxembourg will count on Alex Kirsch and Ryan Mullen will face the road with the Irish team.
