Omloop Het Nieuwsblad-vrouwen elite

women|Feb 27

Team DSM coach Hans Timmermans: “With two solid team camps behind us we’ve had a really good preparation period and we’re ready to start our season at Omloop with a strong team and group of riders. Floortje finished in third place here for us last year and alongside Liane, we’ll work to bring them deep into the tough finale in a good position. The 2018 edition of the race ended in a reduced sprint so Lorena gives us a good option for that if she is able to survive the tests of the cobbles. Juliette, Pfeiffer and Susanne are all riders whose qualities suit this type of race and with that we’re aiming to ride aggressively in the front group and be present in any dangerous moves; giving ourselves the best chance of a nice result.”
