Team Liv-Plantur will be in action this weekend with the Women’s Tour de Yorkshire Race. The women’s race will be held on the same course as the men with a parcours of 136km long that is expected to end in a bunch sprint but with tricky weather conditions it could end up being a really hard race with a reduced group of riders making it to the finish.
“It is the first time we are competing in Yorkshire and we are really looking forward to taking part in this edition,” explained coach Rudi Kemna (NED). “Leah is going to be our leader and she will have strong support from the team. We will aim to put Leah in a good position before the key moments of the race but we have to aware of the weather conditions, which can be tough in Yorkshire.
“The parcours contains a lot of hills and narrow roads making it a difficult finale. If the race comes back together for a sprint we will go for Leah who is in good shape at the moment and can aim for a podium finish.”
