While the status of Paris-Nice is in disarray due to the ProTour/Grand Tour row, Gent-Wevelgem, not run by any of the three grand tour organizers, has announced a list of five teams to race in its 69th edition. Along with 20 ProTour teams, the organizer of the Belgian Classic has selected Belgian teams Chocolade Jacques-Topsport Vlaanderen, Landbouwkrediet-Tönissteiner, British DFL-Cyclingnews-Litespeed, Dutch Skil-Shimano and German Wiesenhof-Felt.

The ProTour event, won last year by Thor Hushovd (Crédit Agricole), will be disputed April 11.
