Tomorrow we will be at the start line of one of the most iconic Belgian classics. Omloop Het Nieuwsblad holds a 170 km long parcour including some of the most well-known cobbles section that will make tomorrow’s a tough ride for the peloton.
Our Henrik Evensen, knows the significance of the importance of starting in this race:
“Its a special race. A little different from the other races we do and in my opinion one of the coolest on the calendar.
This will be my first race back after a long period of sickness and recovery. Training has been good lately, but racing is always a different story. In these kind of races you can’t just sit on for an easy ride to the finish. I’m going to give everything form the start and really be a part of the race for as long as possible. If I have a good day I hope to be there all the way to the line. The way the team has been racing lately, I’m confident we will be fighting for the victory if we commit. I am really looking forward to it!”
Our Performance coach and DS for the race, Dries Hollanders highlights the critical points of the race, and the importance to tackle it as a unit:
