- Greg Van Avermaet (CCC Team) before the 2019 Gent-Wevelgem: "It’s always exciting to get to this point in the season, the final races before Tour of Flanders and Paris-Roubaix. I feel good and am confident in the shape I have after Italy. It was frustrating to have a few near misses so I’m going to channel that frustration into these Classics and hope to be back on the podium.  As a team, we have raced the last two months together and I think we are working well. All of the guys have a lot of experience on the cobbles and know the roads so I’m confident that we will race aggressively. The key to success at the Classics is a combination of form and luck. I know I have the form so I can’t wait to get back to the start line on home soil."

- Lars Bak (Team Dimension Data): "We have Bernie Eisel and Edvald Boasson Hagen who have both won this race before so that’s a big plus, certainly.  It’s always been a big classic but now the distance is like a real Classic, 250km and with the “Plugstreets”, for the third year now.  It seems that it’s going to be dry but that area is always wind, and that’s also in the prediction, so it’s a sprinter classic but with the “Plugstreet”, the parcours and at this distance, it’s really still a super-hard race. It could also be a small group coming to the finish which we’ve seen that before because there’s a lot of wind. So we’re going to have to keep fighting to have a good position in the front the whole day, the crucial point is always on the (final) back side of the Kemmel." 

- Valerio Piva, Sports Director, CCC Team: "Gent-Wevelgem is typically more of a sprinters’ Classic and we often see a larger group of 30 or 40 riders going for a bunch sprint. However, as we saw when Greg won in 2017, anything can happen especially when no-one takes responsibility for chasing any late attacks on the flat run into the finish. Greg has always been up there and in the right moves at Gent-Wevelgem and with his current shape, it should be no different on Sunday."

- Tom Scully (EF Education First-Drapac): "I’m looking at it much the same as last year: eyes wide open and writing the important bits down. I don’t have to look far to find a truckload of experience around me that I can tap into, so I find this is a settling environment.  Already at opening weekend, I’m remembering key moments in the parcours and how our leaders want to be positioned and when. My role is to be there for our leaders, to support them as deep into the race as possible."

- Sep Vanmarcke (EF Education First-Drapac), commenting about E3 Harelbeke and Gent-Wevelgem ahead of the Tour of Flanders: "These races are the most beautiful and interesting races of the year for me.  Hard, honest, history, drama, and of course — cobbles, which suit me very well. I already have a lot of experience, so I know how to go into the races. For sure, I’m always very excited, but I’m not nervous anymore. Years ago, I sure was. Now it’s just some good tension and focus."
