Sebastian Langeveld of Cannondale-Drapac has been on good form since abandoning the Tour, with 14th in RideLondon, 15th in Plouay last week and second on GC in the Czech Tour, which featured a hard and hilly stage. Now, he tells CyclingQuotes he is hunting another top ride overall in the Tour of Britain.

 

“I’m feeling good, I’ve kept training hard since the Tour and have been going quite well in all of the races I’ve done. Last Sunday I was 15th in Ploauy and I had good sensations in the final. The Tour of Britain is a nice parcours with six man teams. There will be a lot of opportunities and I’ll see how far I can go on GC,” Langeveld told CyclingQuotes exclusively at the start of the Tour of Britain.

 

He says the course can suit him, provided he can climb well on the summit finish to Haytor and not get dropped early. He hopes to be on eof the stronger GC riders in the time trial.

 

“In the past when I was in good form I never really had to worry about time trials, I won 10k TTs in the past. On the summit finish, I have to make sure I don’t lose too much time and it’s a course with opportunities. Today should be a bunch sprint and the last day in London the same, but every other day it could be tricky and we always need to keep our eyes open. I always have to be ready to race.”

 

With Cannondale taking Wouter Wippert as their sprinter, Langeveld and Dylan Van Baarle must balance helping him with their own HC aspirations, which Langeveld says is difficult at times.

 

“It’s a little bit tricky working in the leadout if you are targetting GC as you must ensure you don’t lose time at the finish. The best days for our sprinter Wouter are probably the two circuit stages in Bristol and London later this week. He will have two or three guys on his days while Dylan Van Baarle and I mist fight to make sure gaps don’t open up and we lose time.”
