Team dsm-firmenich PostNL’s Classic Weekend

The riders of Team dsm-firmenich PostNL are preparing for a busy Easter weekend of racing, with both the Dwars door Vlaanderen on March 27th and the Ronde van Vlaanderen on March 31st. 

Ahead of the first race, Albert Timmer – team coach, said, “We will be back to racing on the Belgian cobbles for one last time at Dwars door Vlaanderen, before the Ronde van Vlaanderen this weekend.  As usual in a Flemish classic, the race will take on some challenging cobbles and punchy hills as the crucial points of the day. We will have a strong group at the start and ride offensively throughout the day. If there is a sprint from a reduced bunch for the victory, we have Rachele as card to play to go for a result.”

In anticipation of the second race, coach Kelvin Dekker – Team dsm-firmenich PostNL said, “Ronde van Vlaanderen is one of the biggest races of the year and as a team we will do everything to bring Pfeiffer into the final with good legs. We know the course and where all the key points are because of good preparation, and we have a great plan for what to do at exactly which moment. We’ll aim to use our strengths as a team in the best way possible so we can provide her with the best support throughout the whole day.”
