Team DSM Line Up For Omloop Het Nieuwsblad

Team DSM has announced the line-up for the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad Women, which will kick off the Classics season on February 25th in Belgium. This year’s race from Ghent to Ninove marks the eighteenth edition and now offers a longer and more difficult course. Riders will navigate eight climbs and five cobblestoned sections over a total of 132.2km; a fitting challenge for the race that has this year been upgraded to a World Tour event.

In announcing the Team DSM selection, coach Albert Timmer said, “After the great start into the year from our Women’s program with wins in the UAE and Spain, we want to take that flow with us into the classics season. Omloop always marks the long-awaited start to the classics campaign and will be a hectic race. Before the action with hills and cobbled sections starts, we will see a long run-in. For the finale, we will look for Pfeiffer as our finisher, while we also have more options to play in the pre-finale to ride aggressively to look for our chances.”

Pfeiffer Georgi (GBR)
Daniek Hengeveld (NED)
Megan Jastrab (USA)
