Sport director Laurenzo Lapage is pleased to have road captain Mathew Haymanback from injury in time for a race as important as Paris-Roubaix.

 

“It’s great to have Mathew (Hayman) back for this race,” said Lapage. “His experience will be an important factor for the young squad we have here. He is our captain on the road and a veteran of the Spring Classics.

 

“After his strong performance last year at Roubaix Jens (Keukeleire) will be our protected rider and the whole team is super motivated to do a good job and push for the result."

 

“We have prepared ourselves really well,” continued Lapage. “We had a full day on Wednesday on the race recon and we all agree with our plan for Sunday and our objectives are definitely achievable.
