|EVERYTHING READY FOR THE TOUR OF FLANDERS
Tomorrow morning in the Market Square in Oudenaarde, Belgium, a new edition of the Ronde van Vlaanderen will begin. The Team Servetto – Piumate – Beltrami TSA, which was protagonist a few days ago at the Dwars door Vlaanderen with the breakaway by Kseniia Dobrynina, will participate with a confirmed line-up: with the strong Russian rider there will be her compatriots Anna Potokina and Aleksandra Goncharova, the Hungarian Monika Kiraly and the Italian Francesca Balducci.
The race has a length of 159.2 kms and there are ten climbs on cobblestones and asphalt: the most brutal slopes are on the terrible Kapelmuur (19.8%) and on the Paterberg (20%), but other climbs like Taaienberg and Oude Kwaremont can be also decisive before the finish situated again in Oudenaarde.
Dario Rossino, Team Manager of the Team from Asti, says: “We did performe very good at the Dwars door Vlaanderen, now we are at the Tour of Flanders with more faith and mood. Tomorrow’s race is the most important Classic race of the year and the team will give the very best to be in the front.”
