Max Walscheid and former winner Edvald Boasson Hagen will lead the NTT Pro Cycling team at Sunday's Gent Wevelgem, and sports director Lars Michaelsen – also a former winner – says he hopes that the team's current underdog status may count in its favour.

Boasson Hagen won the race in 2009, riding then for the Colombia-Highroad squad, but has yet to take a win in 2020, although he came close, taking second place on stage 7 of the Tour de France in Lavaur behind Jumbo-Visma's Wout van Aert.
