LINE UP

Roy Curvers Tom Dumoulin Ramon Sinkeldam Max Kanter

Team Giant-Alpecin will be participating in the 13th edition of the Tour of Britain, starting this Sunday in Scotland. The first five stages of the British race features plenty of undulating roads suitable for bunch sprints and breakaways. Stage six will see the general classification unfold on the tough uphill finish to Haytor. On the penultimate day, the riders will tackle a 15km individual time trial in the morning followed by a short road stage in the afternoon. The Tour of Britain comes to a climax in London with a flat circuit and a fast finish can be expected.

Coach Marc Reef (NED) said: “The Tour of Britain is a very interesting race with a challenging parcours. The stages present plenty of different opportunities as it will be an open race. We’ll take our chances in the sprints and breakaways and with our line-up we’ll challenge for stage results.”

“Tom returns to racing after his silver medal at the Olympics. He has already proved his capabilities against the clock this season and will be looking for a strong performance at the time trial.”
