Team Liv-Plantur returns to Belgium this weekend with the one-day Belgium race SPAR Flanders Diamond Tour. The women’s peloton will line-up in Antwerp and head inland to Nijlen. As the course is mainly flat, it will be a day for the sprinters to shine. The parcours covers one large circuit of 30.3km and seven local laps of 14.4km totalling 131.1km. The laps have two small climbs but they should not be too steep for the top sprinters to overcome.
Coach Hans Timmermans (NED) said: “The course is pan flat and that will make it a very fast race. The weather conditions can play a role and we will apply an offensive strategy to take the initiative during the race. Leah returns to the line-up and that makes our team even stronger. With Floortje we have options for a sprint finish and we will aim for a podium result.”
