Ceratizit Challenge by La Vuelta

women|Start: 7 September|Finish: 11 September

Team DSM coach Huub Duijn: “La Vuelta Challenge has a bit of everything this year. We start with a TTT, where we will of course go all out for the best possible result – and we have confidence in the discipline after our recent showing in Vårgårda. The following three days are the harder stages, with climbing spread throughout the day. However, with no mountain-top finish, we will look to ride aggressively and use strong group of climbers to animate the race and take our chances. Stage five then finishes in the centre of Madrid, where we can expect a bunch sprint and we will look to set up Megan as our finisher.”
