Omloop Het Nieuwsblad 2018 Definitive Startlist

It’s time for the first Classic of the season, the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad 2018. International cycling doubles its focus between the hot shores of Abu Dhabi and the cold and cloudy Flemish plain, thanks to which the curtain of historical European races goes up. In the second World Tour one day race of the year (the first European World Tour event), scheduled for Saturday 24 February, will take part 25 teams, 17 of which are World Teams. The only squad that declined the organisers’ invitation is Movistar, whose absence allow the number of Professional teams to increase to eight. Greg Van Avermaet (BMC Racing), who is the former winner of this race, has already confirmed his presence to the 2018 edition.
