New Zealand road professional Greg Henderson has made his return to racing after offseason knee surgery.

The Melbourne-based Lotto-Belisol rider was part of a 10-man breakaway which was reeled in close to the finish in the 196km Le Samyn in Belgium and will take part in the Three Days of West-Flanders later this week.

The Three Days of West-Flanders starts with a 7km prologue in Middelkerke.

Among the favourites for the race are last year's winner Kristof Vandewalle, Stijn Devolder and Julien Vermote.

Lotto Belisol will be focusing on a stage win with fast riders like Kenny Dehaes and Van der Sande.

Sports director Jean-Pierre Heynderickx said Henderson was being worked back into race form after undergoing surgery for prepatellar bursitis in his right knee.
