Lotto-Soudal has one of the top favorites for Milan-Sanremo with Caleb Ewan. With Philippe Gilbert, Frederik Frison, Maxim Van Gils and Florian Vermeersch, the Belgian formation also sends 4 compatriots to Italy.
Caleb Ewan is only too happy to convert his second places in Milan-Sanremo next Saturday into a victory this year.
The Australian sprint cannon sharpened his climbing muscles this winter with 1 big goal: to follow the best on the Poggio.
In his pursuit of a first monumental victory, Ewan will be joined by 4 Belgians: worker ant Frederik Frison, Saudi Tour winner Maxim Van Gils, cobblestone tamper Florian Vermeersch and the departing Philippe Gilbert.
For Gilbert, Milan-Sanremo is the only monument that is missing from his rich list of honors.
The Lotto-Soudal selection is supplemented by the German Roger Kluge and Harry Sweeny, a compatriot of Ewan.
