The second in a double-header of one-day WorldTour races in Canada is the GP Cycliste de Montréal on Sunday, featuring the same line-up as in Québec. The race, very similar to Québec, consists of 17 laps of 12.1km for a total of 205.7km and an elevation gain of nearly 3,000 meters.
“Our tactics for Sunday will be similar to Friday’s and we will aim to try and play a role in the finale with Simon,” explained coach Aike Visbeek (NED). “We will aim to ride an offensive race because Montréal is more of an open course where anything can happen.
“We will have to stay attentive during the whole race, where attacks are likely to take place on this demanding parcours. Sam is showing some good form at the moment and with the experience of Bert and Laurens they will be good support for Simon.”
