Team LottoNL-Jumbo will start Saturday May 9th with Steven Kruijswijk as their leader at the 98th Giro d’Italia.
Sports Director Jan Boven has great faith in team leader Steven Kruijswijk. "A top ten ranking is a wonderful challenge for Steven. He already proved his abilities in the past. This year, however, there are a few more additional top riders at the start. The preparations went well for Steven. He has prepared at altitude, just like in 2011, when he finished in eighth place. Steven is a quiet leader, who focusses well. Our team will try to create a relaxing atmosphere, ensure we have a clear daily plan and ride as a team."
Boven knows that winning a stage is a real challenge. Together with Frans Maassen and his riders, he will do everything to win a stage.
“The spring season of Moreno was less successful than expected. That's unfortunate, but the Giro is a motivation to show the world what he can do. His speed can help us to win a stage victory. George Bennett and Martijn Keizer have also prepared themselves at altitude. Our team also has strong riders that will excel because of spring power in their legs."
George Bennett, Rick Flens, Moreno Hofland, Martijn Keizer, Steven Kruijswijk, Nick van der Lijke, Bert-Jan Lindeman, Maarten Tjallingii and Robert Wagner.
