Setmana Valenciana-Volta Comunitat Valenciana Fémines

women|Start: 17 February|Finish: 20 February

Team DSM coach Albert Timmer: “Our Women’s program’s season gets underway in Spain this year, and we’re looking forward to getting started. The first and second day could be decided in a sprint, but they also provide opportunities for the attackers. The third day is the queen stage, with a long 13 kilometre climb early in the day and a mountaintop finish; where we expect the GC will be decided. Finally, the last stage is the flattest of the four and the one where we’ll most likely have a bunch sprint. We have a solid lead out train here for the sprints, with Lorena as our finisher. While for the GC we will take it day-by-day in our first race, but we will look for opportunities to animate things throughout the four stages with our strong block.”
