Sports manager Danny Stam: "Trofeo Alfredo Binda didn't run the way we wanted in recent years, but we have been successful here in the past with wins with Lizzie Deignan-Armitstead, among others. Besides, we are in a good flow. Our season start went perfectly. You can't even imagine such a start to the season beforehand. That gives a lot of confidence and also takes some of the pressure off. Hopefully we can continue the line in Trofeo Alfredo Binda."
"Lorena Wiebes was keen to start in the World Tour leader's jersey. With her, we also have a contender for the victory in the ranks. In Trofeo Alfredo Binda, a bigger group regularly goes to the line. This race suits Lorena, as she already won here as a junior. We can therefore aim for a sprint, but if the scenario presents itself that we can send a rider on the attack, we will certainly not fail to do so. For young girls like Anna Shackley, Niamh Fisher-Black and Mischa Bredewold, this could be a great opportunity to get into the spotlight. The victory series tastes like more, there are still great races to come," said Danny Stam.
