Dexter Gardias has been backed for a strong showing in the Dwars door de Vlaamse Ardennen in Belgium on Saturday (11.30am).
Meanwhile, Chris Opie will return to action in the UCI 1.2 contest following his Tour Series exertions last month.
Tim Elverson has dubbed the race a mini Flanders, with the parcours featuring a number of cobbled climbs synonymous with the spring Classic.
And the sports director has warned his men to expect a tougher test than the team faced in the Memorial Philippe van Coningsloo last weekend.
Joe Fry, Sam Lowe and Matt Nowell took part in that scrap and will return to Belgium with the team this weekend.
George Atkins and Mitchell Webber, who recently joined Gardias as men of the Ras, complete the line-up. Elverson said:
“All the boys who have been doing the Tour Series have had a chance to stretch their legs a little bit now.
“They have been able to get some good training sessions in, while I think Dexter could have a good day out, having got the Ras out of the way.
“Obviously, Chris has proven himself in races like this. Hopefully he will be able to do it again, should the opportunity arise.
“But if it is a small group, someone like Dex could be a good shout. It is going to be tough, though.
“It will be a lot harder than the Memorial van Coningsloo last weekend, much more like a mini Flanders.
“I said to Harry (Tanfield) he didn’t have to do it because I wanted him for the Nocturne. And having looked at the parcours, he couldn’t get out of doing it quick enough!”
The Europe Tour race, which covers a distance of 186km and includes more than 2,000m (around 7,000ft) of climbing, is hosted in Erpe-Mere, East Flanders.
Around 200 riders will set out and tackle cobbled climbs such as the Oude Kwaremont, Paterberg, Taaienberg and Eikenberg, which are synonymous with the Tour of Flanders.
The Taaienberg is often referred to as Boonen Hill, as it has proved a favourite point of attack for Belgian superstar Tom Boonen in De Ronde and E3 Harelbeke.
The Dwars door de Vlaamse Ardennen is now in its fourth season, with the past three editions all won by home riders.
Dimitri Claeys, who now rides for Cofidis, powered to a solo victory in the inaugural race in 2014 before mounting a spirited defence of his crown the following season.
He had to settle for second in 2015, though, as Stijn Steels, from Topsport Vlaanderen – Baloise, edged him out after they had escaped to contest the finish with three others.
Timothy Dupont, of Veranda’s Willems, then sprinted to glory from a large group last season, with Brit James Shaw finishing 10th for Lotto-Soudal’s under-23 team.
BIKE Channel Canyon and Madison Genesis will be the first British teams to contest the race when they roll out on Saturday.
