Tomorrow we are back in action in Belgium for the 74th edition of the Dwars door Vlaanderen. The one day race, running from Roeselare to Waregem includes six cobbled sectors and will be great preparation for Ronde van Vlaanderen, which takes place on Sunday.
Edvald Boasson Hagen, who picked up fourth in last year’s race, returns with the support of Reinardt Janse van Rensburg, Jaco Venter and Bernie Eisel. Our Danish duo of Michael Valgren and Lars Bak bolster our lineup, with local Julien Vermote adding to our firepower.
He said it:
“Being on much the same roads, it is the last preparation going into the Ronde on Sunday, but it doesn’t mean it is any easier and also a race that everyone would like to win. The weather prediction is not great, which always makes it even harder.
I am looking forward to this “mini-Flanders”, and we hope to chase a good result here, after a hard weekend for the team.”
