What's Cool In Road Cycling

Belkin aims for improved performance in Binche

The Belkin Pro Cycling Team sees opportunities in the Binche-Tournai-Binche tomorrow. With a bunch sprint likely, Sports Director Erik Dekker looks to Mark Renshaw to deliver the goods. Otherwise, Dekker hopes the other riders step up.

Dekker expects the race will unfold in similar fashion as the stages in last week’s Circuit Franco Belge-Tour de l’Eurometropole. The conditions were calm and helped see the stages end in bunch sprints. The Belkin Pro Cycling Team worked hard to fool the sprinters but without came away without success.

“It’s likely there will be a bunch sprint in Binche too but we’re going to try to force something and give our all to do so. If it still ends up in a sprint we always have Mark Renshaw to rely on.”

Jetse Bol
Jetse Bol hopes to finish as high up as possible in Binche-Tournai-Binche. The Dutchman is in good shape, finishing tenth place overall in the Circuit Franco Belge-Tour de l’Eurometropole.

“It wasn’t the best result of the year but it was still a nice outcome,” Bol said. “I feel good and Binche suits me. The course has become slightly more difficult and I want to finish up at the top.”
