Run over a 203.2 kilometre parcours between Chaudfontaine and Namur, the race takes in a series of testing climbs including the Citadel of Namur less than one kilometre from the finish.
Astana's lineup will be spearheaded by Russian one-day specialists Guennadi Mikhailov and Serguei Ivanov and Australian Aaron Kemps. The remainder of the squad is composed of Igor Abakoumov (Bel), Maxim Gourov (Kaz), Benoît Joachim (Lux), Dmitriy Muravyev (Kaz) and Michael Schär (Swi).
