High Road ready for Gent-Wevelgem without Burghardt

American ProTour team High Road believes its line-up for tomorrow's Gent-Wevelgem is capable of winning no matter how the race unfolds, despite Marcus Burghardt's absences from the team's roster. Burghardt is unable to defend his crown at the Belgian race as he's currently recovering from an injury.

"The good news is we’ve got eight riders with the ability to win in Gent-Wevelgem," said team manager Rolf Aldag. "We can cover a lot of different circumstances - if there’s a breakaway or if 30 or 40 riders reach the finish together, we should be there."
