Strade Bianche Donne

women|Mar 5

Team DSM coach Huub Duijn: “Strade Bianche is a special race and although it hasn’t been on the calendar for that long, it is already a classic. Next to the short and steep Tuscan climbs there are the challenging white gravel roads, which make for a tough afternoon of racing. To go well here you need a bit of luck, but even more so good teamwork is important, so that you’re in the right position for the difficult moments. Like in other classics, we want to use our strength in depth, as we have multiple riders that we think can do well here. We also want to race aggressively and through that stay out of trouble, creating numbers in the front coming into the final of the race.”
