Team Visma | Lease a Bike have confirmed which of their riders will be heading to their respective National Championships in the coming days. Of note, Wout van Aert will take on the Belgian men's elite road race with three teammates.

A former winner of the Belgian tricolor back in 2021, van Aert will be supported in his quest for a second national road title by the Team Visma | Lease a Bike trio of Julien Vermote, Tosh van der Sande and Tiesj Benoot, with the latter also posing as a potential plan B and viable winner of the Belgian National Championship if the cards fall correctly on the 23rd of June.

Also worth noting, Team Visma | Lease a Bike will send a seven strong squad to the men's elite road race at the Dutch National Championships as sprint star Olav Kooij looks to take over the national title from his own teammate, Dylan van Baarle, who won't be defending his championship win from 2023.

Elsewhere, Christophe Laporte will battle for the French National Championships, Ben Tulett will be competing for the British national road title, Attila Valter will defend his Hungarian title and Edoardo Affini will be at the startline of the men's elite road race at the Italian National Championships.
