Preview: Omloop Het Nieuwsblad

27 February 2021

Finally! Racing starts again… And how! The first race in our brand-new Team SD Worx kit, in today’s Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. Last year, two riders from the team finished in the top 10, which indicates that this race suits the team well. On the Flemish terrain, later in 2020 season both the Tour of Flanders (Chantal Blaak) and Gent-Wevelgem (Jolien D'Hoore) were won.

The start shot is giving at 13:45, after when the race is leading us over the famous cobbles and climbs, like Molenberg and Kapelmuur, of Flanders.

Our line-up includes Anna van der Breggen, Chantal van den Broek-Blaak, Jolien D’Hoore, Christine Majerus, Amy Pieters and Demi Vollering. After two good training camps in Denia on the Costa Brava and an extensive course recon last Tuesday before the team presentation in the 'Centrum Ronde van Vlaanderen', the team seems ready for Omloop Het Nieuwsblad.

It's the first race in this team for our new rider Demi. "I feel super excited to race for the first time with this super strong team! I can't wait to show our new jerseys! I feel super proud to be part of this team!". 

“We will see a race of the highest level today, but it will also be a matter of waiting because it is the first race of the season. With this line-up, we have more cards to play and we will certainly compete for the podium places”, says Danny Stam.
