The one-day race Drentse Acht van Westerveld covers a distance of 140.5km and it will be a good opportunity for Team Liv-Plantur to show themselves again. The race is very susceptible to crosswinds and so echelons can be expected to play their part in the outcome.
“Our race plan will be more focused on the open parts of the race and we will look to take the initiative if possible,” said coach Hans Timmermans (NED). “For us, it would be good to have a hard race and we will need to be attentive to being in the right breakaways with as many riders as possible. I expect to be involved in the decisive moments of the race and we are eager to have another top 10 result.”
