List of riders taking part in the 2017 edition of E3 Harelbeke in Belgium on Friday, March 25

Attention returns to the northern European cobbled Classics this weekend, with E3 Harelbeke on Friday (March 24).

As one of the major pre-Tour of Flanders races as well as being a prestigious event in its own right, E3 Harelbeke often commands a star-studded start list. This year is no different, with all of the major Spring Classics contender in attendance.

In the absence of defending champion Michal Kwiatkowski (Team Sky), world champion Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) – the runner up last year and the winner in 2014 – wears the number one bib.

With the race covering many of the same roads as the Tour of Flanders, Sagan will face tough competition from the likes of Tom Boonen (Quick-Step Floors), Greg Van Avermaet (BMC Racing), Luke Rowe and Ian Stannard (Team Sky), Sep Vanmarcke (Cannondale-Drapac), Jasper Stuyven (Trek-Segadredo), and Edvald Boasson Hagen (Dimension Data) in a star-studded start list.
