Dries Hollanders, DS for the races :
“The team is ready for this action packed weekend! Jordi has proven his excellent shape in the Giro U23, now its up to him the show himself between the pro’s, the race in Antwerp on sunday must be his goal this weekend! Jesper has found his fast legs back at Valkenwaard, he has confidence and with the good shape he can go for an outstanding result at Saturday in Heiste. Don’t forget that he also finished 3th in a simular race ‘Wanzele’ at the beginning of the season. Maikel is already some weeks in a good shape, riding aggressively in the past races but without luck to finish with a sparkling result. Hopefully the luck is on his side this weekend. Sven can play a crucial role for the team this weekend, he did a recon of the gravel sections from Antwerp and with all his experience he will be the team captain. Also he is hungry after a good result for himself. The same counts for Wessel, after a hard period with some injury’s he growing back to his top shape. For Harrison a chance to prove himself after a Giro that didn’t went as expected caused by sickness. Lets be clear, 2 days of high level racing against the real pro’s, but we are not afraid. All the riders are good enough, that means we have a lot off cards to Play. Aggressive and attractive riding, but also fast guys that can battle in a bunch sprint”
