On Thursday, NTT Pro Cycling will lineup for Tour de la Provence, a four-day race set in southeastern France. Stage one will be a flat, fast stage and likely result a bunch sprint. The remaining three stages will be a test of attrition, with two summit finishes on the cards, including Mont Ventoux/Chalet Reynard on Saturday. NTT Pro Cycling will have Giacomo Nizzolo leads the line for us among our sprint options. Nizzolo secured our first victory of the year on Stage 5 at the Tour Down Under. The experience of Roman Kreuziger and Danilo Wyss will provide support to those two, while also guidance to.

Hideto Nakane (Nippo Delko) won stage 6 of the Tour de Langkawi from his late breakaway companion, Gleb Brussenskiy (Vino-Astana Motors). Samuele Battistella (NTT Pro Cycling) won the sprint from the chasing group, to take 3rd place. Stage 6 of the Tour de Langkawi saw another fast start to the day, with the break taking over 70km to form. Once it did, there was a slight calm to proceedings before the peloton tackled the two main obstacles of the day, a category 2 and category 1 climb that followed in quick succession in the final quarter of the stage. NTT Pro Cycling paid close attention.
