Oliver Naesen: "A harder race than last year"
"The three days in the Alps during the Tour de France really tired me.
The first days were difficult, but now it's better.
I have already participated in the London race (10th in 2017).
Generally, it ends with a mass sprint. This year, the race will be different and more difficult.
There will be a lot of classic specialists at the start, and that could make it interesting.
For me, the race should be decided with a small group of riders at the end. After London, like every year, I will go on to the Binck Bank Tour, Plouay and the Quebec races.”OLIVER NAESEN
Apart from Ben Gastauer, the whole team racing in London also took part in the Flanderian classics campaign this spring.
