The Omloop Het Volk, scheduled on next Saturday 1 March, will be the hors d’oeuvres of North Classics. A lot of walls, with an incline from 4 to 20 per cent, and the sections in pavè will constitute a very good test bed for those who want to be in the mix in a month, at the Ronde van Vlaanderen.

The Liquigas Team is getting ready to partake of the Omloop Het Volk on Saturday, a sort of hors d'oeuvres of northern semi-classics. Though the race will be without 2007 winner Filippo Pozzato, Liquigas will field Enrico Franzoi as he gets ready for Paris-Roubaix. On Sunday the team heads to Kuurne-Bruxelles-Kuurne.

On Sunday, a different Liquigas team of eight riders will play their cards looking for success at the GP Lugano.

Liquigas for Omloop Het Volk and Kuurne-Bruxelles-Kuurne: Enrico Franzoi, Alberto Curtolo, Mauro Da Dalto, Murilo Fischer, Aliaksandr Kuchynski, Roberto Petito, Manuel Quinziato and Frederik Willems under Mario Scirea

Liquigas for GP Lugano: Michael Albasini, Leonardo Bertagnolli, Kjell CarlstrÖm, Andrea Noè, Franco Pellizotti, Ivan Santaromita, Alessandro Vanotti and Charles Wegelius under Dario Mariuzzo.
