Following on from Drentse 8 of Westerveld, the Ronde van Drenthe is on the programme on Sunday. CCC-Liv is ambitious and hopes to achieve a strong performance in this UCI Women’s WorldTour classic. Marianne Vos, Evy Kuijpers, Valerie Demey, Marta Lach, Riejanne Markus and Jeanne Korevaar are representing our orange formation.
“The Ronde van Drenthe is a long race with 165 kilometres and very tough with the many cobblestone sections, the VAMberg and the wind. It is important to be alert all day, because the race can explode at any time. I count on an endurance battle; only the strongest riders in the race will remain. Marianne Vos is in good shape, better so than last year when she performed well here. I also expect good things from Jeanne Korevaar. We have a strong team that has the potential to go far”, says sports director Jeroen Blijlevens.
