Belgian national coach Rudy De Bie announced the ten names for the sixth world cup event, this Saturday in Koksijde. Experienced Belgian amateur champion David Willemsens (Vos Sportief), winner of Sunday's 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 Jan Soetens (Jartazi - Promo Fashion), they're struggling to confirm there inspired performances of October. Rudy De Bie probably prefers these strong experienced riders for the sandy terrain in Koksijde.
The selection: Sven Nys, Sven Vanthourenhout, Bart Aernouts, Erwin Vervecken, Bart Wellens, Klaas Vantornout, Kevin Pauwels, Davy Commeyne, Tim Van Nuffel and David Willemsens.
