Gent-Wevelgem 2017: TV schedule

World champion Peter Sagan looks to repeat 2016 triumph

World champion Peter Sagan rolls out for Gent-Wevelgem as defending champion on Sunday, as the cobbled Classics action continues to come thick and fast.

Sagan will face competition from sprinters like Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data) in what is regarded a ‘sprinter’s Classic’, but a bunch gallop is far from guaranteed with the cobbled Kemmelberg climb among the day’s chief obstacles.

Success for Cavendish – or any of the seven Brits on the startline – would be the first instance of a British winner at Gent-Wevelgem since Barry Hoban in 1974.

But with Sagan favourite, and former winners John Degenkolb, Edvald Boasson Hagen and Tom Boonen on the startline, it could be anyone’s race.

And you can follow the action live on British Eurosport. Here’s when to tune in…
