Setmana Ciclista Valenciana

women|Start: 21 February|Finish: 24 February

Team Sunweb coach Hans Timmermans: “Our first race of the season, we’re looking forward to opening our year on a high note at Valenciana. In this race Floortje will have her first opportunity to explore her GC chances and Coryn will have the sprinters role. Both have a super strong team around them to support these goals. The first day is already an important one for the GC, but it could also come to a reduced sprint so we’ll bring both Floortje and Coryn into position for the final climb here. The second stage looks set to be a sprint day and the third will be another important day for the GC. The final stage looks to be a little more open, so we will once again focus on both Floortje and Coryn here. We’ve just come out of a really good training block in Calpe and were able to do some recons of the race, so we’re totally prepared and really motivated for a good race. It’s also Susanne and Janneke’s first race for the team so that brings more motivation for a good race.”
