Van Gestel is really the only other climber that is joining the team. Declercq isn't half bad either. The others are more classics style riders. Van Hooydonck is certainly a stud one-day racer and isn't half bad on a TT bike too so the prologue will be one of his targets. Van Rooy is certainly good on Ardennes style climbs, which are not really too present in this race. Stage 1 has a late climb that could benefit him and maybe stage 4 but that could be too much for him. He should be able to give De Plus some good support in the early parts of stages.
Prediction: De Plus finishes 4th overall; Van Hooydonck goes 5th in the prologue; Van Rooy 2nd on breakaway stage
