Tour de France Femmes

women|Start: 24 July|Finish: 31 July

Team DSM coach Albert Timmer: “The first edition of the Tour de France Femmes has a really nice parcours; with a variety of terrain that suits a lot of different riders. We should see some sprint finishes, days for the punchers and breakaway artists and then the final weekend which includes the majority of climbing and will decide the GC. We go to the race with the main goals of setting up fast finisher Lorena for the sprints and supporting Juliette as our GC finisher to go for the best possible result there. We will also look to each day individually and come up with plans to get the most out of each stage. Everyone is really motivated for an exciting week of action and to show our Team DSM colours at the front of the race.”
