Spain’s Carlos Barbero will feature in a strong lineup named for Team Qhubeka ASSOS’ challenge at Le Samyn (203.7km) on Tuesday.
Barbero will be joined by Victor Campenaerts and Dimitri Claeys, who both put in very strong performances during the course of Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Kuurne-Bruxelles-Kuurne, in looking to play active roles in what promises to be another exciting day of racing.
The South African duo of Nicholas Dlamini and Reinardt Janse van Rensburg will play important supporting roles too, alongside that of Lukasz Wisniowski and Andreas Stokbro who complete our seven-rider roster.

After a hard opening weekend the team was solid in the fight and we worked really well together. The sensation or feeling on the bike has been good and I am looking forward to another cobblestone race like Samyn.
We hope we can perform strong and be with the same philosophy as the previous days, which will see our team play its part in what will hopefully be a great race.
Gino Van Oudenhove – Sports Director
We are looking to continue our Cobbled Classics start to the season following on from a strong performance over the weekend, and so we want to do the same at Samyn.
We know from experience that it will be a very hectic race, a lot of cobbled sections and a lot of groups split across the road as a result. We will race offensively and see that we have the right numbers in the right groups, and then approach the final from there.
We don’t really have an outright leader as they’re all quite good, so our thing will to be to play on several riders on the day.
