The second race of the Women’s WorldTour takes place this Saturday with the Women’s WorldTour Ronde van Drenthe. The race favours the attacking riders with its up and down parcours and cobbled sections along the route.
Coach Hans Timmermans (NED) said: “The weather often has an impact on this race with the wind and cobbles to be aware of. With Leah and Floortje we have two leaders who are capable of doing a strong race and the team is going to support them in the positioning before the key sections. If we look at the past weeks anything is possible and we can be confident in getting a good result.”
Floortje Mackaij said: “I am really looking forward to the upcoming weekend in Drenthe. We have a really strong team and I’m also feeling really good at the moment. I think the team can perform well here and I’m curious about the outcome of the race.”
