Trofeo Alfredo Binda on Sunday is the third race of the Women’s WorldTour. Floortje Mackaij (NED) currently holds the youth jersey after the Ronde van Drenthe race where both herself and Leah Kirchmann (CAN) finished in the top 10.
“Trofeo Alfredo Binda is a hard race with lots of climbs in the final part,” said coach Dirk Reuling (NED). “There will be a strong field of riders competing in Italy since the race is part of the WorldTour series.
“We will focus on a good result with Leah and bring her as fresh as possible into the finale. Leah last weekend got the first victory for the team and we will be aiming for more success in the coming weeks. In Strade Bianche, she climbed already very well and if she can remain in contact with the first group we will be aiming for a sprint and with a slightly uphill finish, it can be to her advantage.”
