The rest of the team comprises Italy’s Enrico Gasparotto, the Czech Republic’s Roman Kreuziger, Denmark’s Michael Valgren, the Netherlands’s Tom-Jelte Slagter and America’s Ben King.
DiData team sports director Alex Sans Vega said the 256km Liege-Bastogne-Liege was a historic race and it was a privilege for them to again be competing in it.
“Our team has shown some progression during these Ardennes classics and Gasparotto’s top-10 [finish] at Fleche-Wallonne has given us confidence and momentum to take into the race tomorrow.”
He said they expected an inspired performance from the team and he believed it would be a great race.
“We hope to be a factor in the finale.”
