Paris-Tours Elite

men|Oct 10

Team DSM coach Marc Reef: “Paris-Tours is a race where we have good memories from the last three years having won it two times. Since the change of the parcours three years ago it has became a different race. The focus has shifted more to the final with all its short hills and gravel sections, but in the beginning you also always have to be alert as it is open and the wind can play an important role there. Even without the wind it will be a very challenging race where we need to be ready from the start, so that we’re in control and able to to come into the final as fresh as possible with as many riders as possible. From there we want to race aggressively and with the our good performance recently at Roubaix, then I think we can be there in the finish to fight for a good result.”
