INEOS Grenadiers look to surprise with collectively strong team for E3 Saxo Classic

INEOS Grenadiers deploys a team with mix of talent and experience for the E3 Saxo Classic, hoping to surprise the favourites on their way to a big result.

Jhonatan Narváez might be the British team's best card. The Ecuadorian champion entered the season in a big style, finishing second overall in Tour Down Under. Additionally, the 27-year-old keeps on improving on cobbles every year, and thus a top 10 result is not as unlikely as it may seem.

Magnus Sheffield and 'Big Ben' Ben Turner will look for a chance to slip away from the bunch in later parts of the race. Meanwhile Elia Viviani will try to save his legs for the low possibility of a sprint of bigger group.

Despite lacking a big name for the Belgian semi-classic, INEOS is not to underestimated as their collective strength could put them in very demanding position, especially later on when the race blows up.

INEOS Grenadiers lineup for E3 Saxo Classic:
Ben Turner, Magnus Sheffield, Jhonatan Narváez, Elia Viviani, Luke Rowe, Ben Swift and Connor Swift
