Jungels will look to build momentum ahead of his Giro d'Italia campaign. The 24-year-old from Luxembourg won the young rider's jersey in Italy last year in addition to finishing sixth overall, and he's hoping to cement his status as a rising Grand Tour contender this season. As a strong time trialist, he figures to be a strong contender for the general classification in Romandie, which opens with a prologue against the clock and concludes with a 18.3km individual time trial as well.
De la Cruz heads into the Swiss stage race in the strongest form of his career. Building on a surprising seventh overall at the Vuelta a España to close out 2016, he has gotten off to hot start in 2017. Among other results, he has won stages in Paris-Nice and the Vuelta al País Vasco this season along with finishing fourth in the latter.
Fast finishing Max Richeze and neo-pros Maximilian Schachmann and Rémi Cavagna will be among those rounding out the roster for the Belgian squad in Romandie.
Quick-Step Floors for the Tour de Romandie: Rémi Cavagna, David de la Cruz, Tim Declercq, Bob Jungels, Davide Martinelli, Maximiliano Richeze, Maximilian Schachmann, Martin Velits
