WNT Madrid Challenge by La Vuelta

women|Start: 14 September|Finish: 15 September

Team Sunweb coach Koen de Haan:“Madrid Challenge is again a two-day stage race, however, unlike last year the first stage will be an individual TT instead of a TTT. This makes it quite difficult to match last year’s performance where we took the victory in the TTT, won the GC and had four riders in the top five overall. Nonetheless, with a couple of strong TT riders in our line-up, our goal for this year is to have several riders near the top of the GC after the TT. On Sunday this will mean that we have several cards to play during the second stage in downtown Madrid, where we hope for an attacking race.”
