In France, CCC-Liv competes in the last stage race of this season. namely the Tour Cycliste Féminin International de l’Ardèche which takes place from Friday 13 to Thursday 19 September. Marianne Vos, Jeanne Korevaar, Valerie Demey, Pauliena Rooijakkers and Agnieszka Skalniak are part of the team.
Sports director Jeroen Blijlevens: “The Tour of the Ardèche is a beautiful but difficult stage race in which we need to cover the necessary altimeters. We mainly go there to take some stages. Pauliena Rooijakkers has won a stage here in the past and is now a focus of the team, just like Marianne Vos. They may pick out the stages which suit them. For Valerie Demey, Agnieszka Skalniak and Marianne Vos, the tour is also a good opportunity to work on the finishing touches in light of the world championship in Yorkshire.”
