After a tough week of racing in the Italian mountains at the Giro Rosa, Team Liv-Plantur is back in action on the flatlands of the third edition of BeNe Ladies Tour. This three-day race taking place in the Netherlands and Belgium is set over four stages – an opening 78.1km stage on Friday followed by a doubleheader on Saturday, starting with a short and flat 6.3km morning time trial then a 101.3km road stage in the afternoon. On Sunday it is another flat stage where a fast finish is expected
Coach Hans Timmermans (NED) said: “We have a strong team to challenge well at the BeNe Ladies Tour with three riders coming out of the Giro Rosa. The weather often has an impact on this race with the wind and cobbles that can make a difference, and we will be ready for these.
“We will play the card of Floortje as our sprinter. She is showing good form at the moment and can aim for podium finishes, which might result in a good overall classification. Next to that we will be targeting a strong result in the time trial with Riejanne, who took second in the final stage of the Giro Rosa last week.”
