Omloop Het Nieuwsblad

Team DSM coach Marc Reef: “After a long period of good preparation with some of the guys just back from a solid team altitude block, we’re looking forward to opening weekend and the the first cobbled race of the year at Omloop. Romain makes his race debut for the team and for most it’s also their season opener. Our main goal is to race aggressively and as a block, like we showed in races last year, in search of a good result. It depends on the weather and the direction of the wind, but after every corner a new chance to make a move is there, and we have to ride aggressively to take those chances and opportunities. We have multiple riders that are able to get a good result in the race, but the most important thing is that we do it together and as a block, playing it out tactically so that we can bounce off of each other and use strength in numbers to our advantage.”
