‘’We are going to this race with high expectations. The Tour of Britain is a race that suits us, we’ve had a lot of successes in the past years. Of course we would like to repeat that. We have a lot of riders who can battle for the stage wins. The general classification is less important but with Mike Teunissen and Amund Jansen, who are in a good form, we can try to make a big impression. Moreover, we also have riders with us who can score in the individual time trial’’, tells sports director Jan Boven.
Groenewegen will make his return to the peloton after a period of relative calm. ‘’His condition is on a good level. He did a few tough training sessions. Dylan will show again that he can win bunch sprints, we will go for that.”
