Team Sunweb rejig Paris-Nice roster


Following the earlier announcement that the team will no longer ride the Italian line of racing as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, Team Sunweb has altered their Paris-Nice line-up.

Team Sunweb’s Paris-Nice line-up is now as follows:

Søren Kragh Andersen (DEN)
Nikias Arndt (GER)
Tiesj Benoot (BEL)
Cees Bol (NED)
Nico Denz (GER)
Nils Eekhoff (NED)
Chris Hamilton (AUS)
Michael Matthews (AUS)

Team Sunweb’s Head of Coaching, Rudi Kemna said: “After our decision to not participate in the Italian races, we have altered our roster for Paris-Nice. It’s a good race leading up to the classics and in this way we can gain racing rhythm for our classics guys. Our goal to sprint with Cees remains intact and we have a really strong team to support that goal. For the difficult sprints, we have added Michael to the roster. We will also look to bring Tiesj into a good position in the overall standings and bring a solid result home there. Plans for the rest of the team outside of Paris-Nice are still in process.”
