Preview and line-up Tour Down Under

Preview and line-up Tour Down Under

It’s finally happening! The first World Tour race of the season will start soon. After months of preparation, our riders and staff are ready to roll.

George Bennett has already ridden two races during the national championships of New Zealand. His goal in the Tour Down Under is a good position in the general classification.

Sports Director Frans Maassen: “George is our leader in Tour Down Under. The GC will be determined during the last stage to Willunga Hill. The fourth stage will also prove to be very important. A few kilometres before the finish line there’s a small climb of 2.4 kilometres with an average gradient of 9.1 percent and a maximum gradient of 16 percent.”


“For Danny, there are multiple chances for a sprint finish. It seems that he has the biggest chance on a good result in the second and third stage. These stages include multiple altitude metres and have a tough finish.”
