Danilith Nokere Koerse

men|Mar 16

Team DSM coach Roy Curvers: “Nokere Koerse is a typical Belgian spring race with cobblestones and short climbs, where it is key to be alert the whole day. For this type of racing we really need to focus on riding as a team and to be in position for the crucial moments. With former winner Cees in our line-up, we have a strong finisher, so we will try and keep him safe and allow Cees to save as much energy for the finish; if it comes down to a fight between the peloton. A bunch sprint is not the only way the race can be won though, so we will race aggressively and make sure we are present in all the important breaks. We have a lot of guys with fast legs so we have several opportunities for us to fight for a good result depending on how the race goes.”
