Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana

men|Start: 2 February|Finish: 6 February

Team DSM coach Marcel Sieberg: “Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana will be the first race of the season for all of the guys here. We had a good period of training and everyone is very motivated to finally start racing. There is a nice mix of parcours throughout the five stages, with the first three particularly hard with a lot of climbing, although stage two could offer a reduced bunch sprint scenario. In stages one and three we want to be active in the race and show our jersey well, before once again focusing on the bunch sprints in the final two days of racing. Our main goal of the race is to get into the season in a good way and focus on our general development. We also want to race actively and show our Team DSM jersey at the front.”
