Team Giant-Alpecin takes part in the 100th edition of Ronde van Vlaanderen this Sunday for the second monument of the season. Ronde van Vlaanderen is one of the toughest one-day classics and requires concentration from start to finish with strong legs, as the riders tackle 18 steep hills as well as 19km of cobblestones sections over the course of 256km of racing.

"The Ronde van Vlaanderen is of the most demanding one-day races of the year," said coach Marc Reef. "It is considered as of one of the biggest days in the calendar and it is always a very special day for the riders that are involved.

"The objective of the team is to be visible at the front of the race. Next to that, we also want to put Zico and Koen in a good position ahead of the key moments of the race and, in particular, the hill sections. During the second time the riders tackle the Oude Kwaremont, the race usually starts to open up so we need to be attentive. Last year, the team finished seventh in the race and this year we will aim to go for a positive result with either Zico or Koen."
