Team LottoNL-Jumbo will start La Flèche Wallonne on Wednesday with two leaders, Wilco Kelderman and Paul Martens.
 
"We are working hard to get to the top, which requires a certain way of racing,” Sports Director Merijn Zeeman said.
 
“I saw encouraging things on Sunday in the Amstel Gold Race. We rode an attractive race. It’s the result that counts, however, and we failed to bag one. We want to race with courage, though, and doing so, the results will follow. I’m convinced of that.”
 
Team LottoNL-Jumbo will work for Wilco Kelderman and Paul Martens in La Flèche Wallonne.
 
“We want to help Wilco and Paul start the Mur in the best possible position and shape.
 
“The final kilometres are more difficult than last year because the organisation added an extra climb. I expect that a smaller group will fight for victory this time around.”
 

Kelderman feels ready for La Flèche Wallonne after his performance in the Amstel Gold Race and wants a good result on the Mur de Huy.
 
“Things went better than expected in Amstel,” said the Dutchman, who fell sick last week.
 
“I felt really good in the final. I could even attack. That’s a good thing as it only makes me stronger. With La Flèche Wallonne coming up, that’s a good sign.
 
“It’s also very convenient to ride La Flèche Wallonne with a Tour de France stage finishing on the Mur this year. I trained in the area a few times already, but racing is always different.”
 

Dutchman Robert Gesink will make his comeback in La Flèche Wallonne after a disrupted spring.
 
“I’m delighted with Robert’s return,” added Zeeman. “He will get some race kilometres in his legs. Though he already began 2015, his season really kicks off on Wednesday.”
 
Team line-up:
Laurens ten Dam, Robert Gesink, Wilco Kelderman, Tom Leezer, Nick van der Lijke, Bert-Jan Lindeman, Paul Martens & Mike Teunissen.
