Tomorrow we will be back at Dorpenomloop Rucphen, a race that we know very well as we seized the win last year with David Dekker after a very strong team performance. We took the lead of the race in the final part and we went up the road as a group. Such control of the race gave us an edge in the final and the leadout for David was perfect, so he was in prime position coming into the finishing straight and took his second win of the season. This year, we hope to repeat the same success in a race in which we are familiar with.
Lineup Dorpenomloop Rucphen: Milan Paulus, Maikel Zijlaard, Wessel Krul, Sean Flynn, Jesper Rasch, Tom Day and Nikos Drakos.
Pim Ligthart, Academy DS for the race:
“We know how to win this race and of course that will be the goal tomorrow. We are ready and the legs are at an optimal point, so we have several riders that are capable to contest the victory. The mindset is great and the motivation is high, so we are ready to go!”
