Belgian national coach Rudy De Bie announced the ten names for the sixth world cup event, to be held this Saturday in Koksijde.
Experienced Belgian amateur champion David Willemsens (Vos Sportief) - on Sunday winner in Leicestershire - grabbed his first selection of the season. Tim Van Nuffel (Stevens Racing Team) returned in the selection after being dropped for Pijnacker. These two riders take the places of Jan Verstraeten (SD Worx) and Erwin Vervecken (Fidea). Verstraeten is struggling to confirm his hopeful performances of October, and world champion Vervecken is ill.
The selection: Sven Nys, Sven Vanthourenhout, Bart Aernouts, Erwin Vervecken, Bart Wellens, Klaas Vantornout, Kevin Pauwels, Davy Commeyne, Tim Van Nuffel, David Willemsens, and Jan Soetens.
