Besides Van der Breggen and Van Dijk, world champions Annemiek van Vleuten, Marianne Vos, Chantal Blaak, Amy Pieters, Demi Vollering and sprinter Lorena Wiebes are at the start.
With two-time national champion Mathieu van der Poel, the Dutch men certainly have a contender for the gold. He will be assisted in the race over 177 kilometres by Koen de Kort, Sebastian Langeveld and Pieter Weening, among others
