Circuit des Ardennes

dev|Start: 6 April|Finish: 9 April

Team DSM coach Boris Zimine: “The Circuit des Ardennes is a hard race to control. There are two hilly stages and two flatter stages with some tricky open roads that are perfect for crosswinds. We will race here as an offensive block with a team that fits the profile of this race very well. We will take a day-by-day approach to the race, taking on each stage as if it was a classic, hunting for day results and seeing where that brings us in the overall classification. Our main goal is to continue our good work that we have shown so far in previous events, racing aggressively and offensively as a team.”
