After the success of CCC-Liv in Yorkshire, the next short stage race will be the GP Elsy Jacobs. This three-day-race (Friday 10, Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 May) in Luxembourg consists of a prologue and two stages. Sports director Jeroen Blijlevens opts for a strong free-booters team, consisting of Evy Kuijpers, Marta Lach, Agnieszka Skalniak, Valerie Demey and Riejanne Markus.
“We first have a prologue and then two stages over ravaged terrain. The course is comparable to previous seasons, but I still expect a slightly less predictable development”, says sports director Jeroen Blijlevens. “We form a free-booters team with our five riders who do not have to take anything into account. Our riders are allowed to race for their own chances and show what they have to offer. Who knows, maybe we can achieve a surprising result in one or more stages.”

- Saturday 11 May: Steinfort – Steinfort (107 kilometres)
- Sunday 12 May: Garnich – Garnich (111 kilometres)
