BIKE Channel Canyon will be battling on two fronts this weekend.
Tim Elverson will divide his squad between the Ryedale Grand Prix in North Yorkshire and Belgium, where two UCI races lie in wait.
On Saturday, the team will take on the 1.1 Dwars door het Hageland, won last season by Dutch World Tour star Niki Terpstra.
And 24 hours later, an under-25 squad will go for glory in the 1.2 Antwerpse Havenpijl, where Chris Latham sprinted to fourth last term.
Chris Opie will spearhead a line-up which also includes Sam Lowe, Matt Nowell, Harry Tanfield, Rory Townsend and Mitchell Webber in the former.
The 194.1km battle will see the riders tackle a mixture of terrain, with a total of 20 off-road sectors and 10 in the final 45km.

Opie, who turned 30 last month, is the only omission from Sunday’s race in Merksem, Antwerp, which will cover 168km.
