Itzulia Basque Country

men|Start: 5 April|Finish: 10 April

Team DSM coach Michiel Elijzen: “Itzulia will be a really hard race as it’s known for its tough climbs. We go to the race with a pretty young group of riders, with our main goal to go for day results throughout the week. We have several chances for this, beginning with the time trial. Then in the rest of the race there is a lot of climbing, where we have more opportunities to go for it. We want to try and be in the breaks or challenge in the finales that suit, ride aggressively and see day-by-day what chances we can take to go for a top stage result.”
