Omloop Het Nieuwsblad kicks off the pro racing season in northern Europe on Saturday, February 28.

Last year's edition of the Belgian race saw British rider Ian Stannard (Sky) taking the honours. Stannard returns this year, sporting the number one plate in a team that also includes Bradley Wiggins as he warms up for a tilt at Paris-Nice in April.

Aside from Stannard and Wiggins, British riders include Andy Fenn, Luke Rowe (both Sky), Scott Thwaites (Bora-Argon 18), Russell Downing (Cult Energy) and Dan McLay (Bretagne).
