Amgen Tour of California

men|Start: 12 May|Finish: 18 May

Team DSM coach Aike Visbeek: “The Tour of California offers a mixed parcours, allowing a variety of riders to compete for stage results. In the sprints the team will work to set up Max, while Michael is aiming for a good result in the mountains for the team. Last year Max finished second on the last stage and this year we hope to go one better. We arrive with Cees, who has had a successful classics campaign and Casper, who showed his strength this spring bringing support in the sprints and providing a lot of horsepower for the stage finales. The experience of Roy and Johannes will also be important to help guide the younger riders through the week. After his good debut in Frankfurt, it will be a good experience for Joris to ride his first WorldTour stage race.”
