NTT Pro Cycling is delighted to announce an exciting line-up for one of the highlights of the calendar, the Ronde van Vlaanderen, on Sunday. Michael Valgren and Edvald Boasson Hagen will count among our headline selections with Michael Gogl, who was ninth at Strade Bianchi and performed so well at the Tour de France, set to play a key role on the day as our road captain. Reinardt Janse van Rensburg and Max Walscheid will be looking to build on their recent outings at Gent-Wevelgem and Schelderprijs as the season starts to wind down. Impressive youngsters Samuele Battistella and Rasmus Tiller will have vital roles.
NTT Pro Cycling’s Domenico Pozzovivo retained fourth place overall following stage 12 of the Giro d’Italia on a wet, tricky day that started and finished in Cesenatico. A complete team performance saw team manager Bjarne Riis declare himself delighted with the effort, even if the bad weather ultimately put paid to the team’s hopes of looking to make any possible time gains. Victor Campenaerts was one of a large group in the breakaway before later on being able to drop back and assist Pozzovivo in the latter stages on the technical parcours. The stage was won by Jhonatan Narvaez, who was part of the original.
