Le Samyn des Dames

women|Mar 1

Team DSM coach Huub Duijn: “At Le Samyn we have three riders making their debut for us, with Elise and Francesca starting their first elite race, while Léa also dons our jersey for the first time in a race. It’s the first race of the season for most of our squad here so we will focus on the basics such as riding together as a team and communicating well with each other. Yet we also want to look for opportunities on the three laps of 26 kilometres, which feature some hills and four cobble sections, making for a tough race. We want to be present in numbers at the front so that we can go on the attack, or if the day ends in a group sprint, then we will work to set up Megan as our finisher.”
