Greg Van Avermaet will line up on home soil one last time in his spring Classics campaign when he takes to the start line of Liège-Bastogne-Liège this Sunday. 

“I want to line up at Liège-Bastogne-Liège because it has been a long time since I last started there. I’ve had a really good spring so far so I have nothing to lose by racing. I want to try and see how far I can go because it has been four years since I raced the last time, so I want to see if I am able to get a good result”, said Van Avermaet.

“There’s a big difference in the recovery after Paris-Roubaix and Amstel Gold Race. Paris-Roubaix was one of the hardest races I have done in my life so it was really hard to recover from it. But now, I feel ok. It has been a hard spring but I still feel good and we will just see how it goes on Sunday. I’m not going there as a big favorite, it’s more just to try again and see how far I can go in this kind of race.”

“The Classics are always the main goal in my season so it’s good to have one last race on home soil. I know the region and the roads well so it’s always good to race there.”
