Team Giant-Alpecin have one Spanish excursion this August before the Vuelta a España, with the Vuelta a Burgos. The race starting Tuesday provides the riders a good opportunity to test themselves out in high mountains, on short and steep uphill finishes and in the crosswinds. The five stages that make up the 2016 edition will maintain a similar format from past seasons.

Coach Morten Bennekou (DEN) said: “Burgos will be a good race for those who are riding the Vuelta to fine-tune their form. The goal for the team as a whole is to aim for stage opportunities, to go on the offensive and get into the breakaways. We expect to see some promising performances and we want to show ourselves during the stages.

“The race will also give the opportunity to our stagiaires Jochem and Martijn, to get a good idea of what the professional world is like and also at riding as a team at this level.”
