La Vuelta Ciclista a España

men|Start: 19 August|Finish: 11 September

Team DSM coach Matt Winston: “This year’s Vuelta parcours offers the peloton a bit of everything; with a team time trial, individual time trial, sprint stages, big days in the mountains and several break opportunities. We’re looking forward to getting the race underway in the Netherlands before the return to Spain after the opening three days. We have a really motivated group of guys in the squad that includes a nice mix of youth and experience; with Marco, Jonas and Henri making their Grand Tour debuts. As for our goals throughout the race, we will look to hold Thymen in the GC and not lose any time early in the race, while also looking to ride aggressively with the team as we hunt for stage success too.”
