What's Cool In Road Cycling

La Route de France (2.1)

Team Liv-Plantur is back in stage race action this coming weekend at La Route de France, a race the team raced strongly at last season winning three stages, as well as the overall GC with Claudia Lichtenberg (GER).

Lichtenberg returns this year to defend her title with a young yet strong team expecting a hard fight over the course of the seven days of racing.

As well as aims of a strong overall result, the team can also look towards targeting the sprint stages with Lucy Garner (GBR) and Amy Pieters (NED), both of whom are able of finishing well on the fast bunch finishes.

“In Claudia we have a serious contender for the overall, being last year’s winner,” coach Hans Timmermans (NED) told us ahead of the race. “There’s a strong field here again this season so we expect a hard race but it should be a very good one.

“In the sprint stages we have Amy and Lucy who can score well there, and then I expect the stage finish up La Planche des Belles Filles to be where the differences are made for GC. Hopefully Claudia can hold her own here, and we will be supporting her in this.”
