Belkin will line up at the Grand Prix Quebec and Montreal with most of the riders that won two stages of the Tour of Alberta. The team will be joined by Bauke Mollema that will start his autumn season after a short break from racing.

 

The Belkin Pro Cycling TEAM is taking on a new challenge in Canada. After the successful Tour of Alberta, the team has traveled to eastern Canada to contest a pair of one-day races; the Grand Prix Cycliste Québec (Friday, September 12th) and the Grand Prix Cycliste Montréal (Sunday, September 14). 

In the past, the riders of Team Belkin have played a very big role in the Canadian classics. The team is hoping for a repeat of 2012 and 2013, when Lars-Petter Nordhaug won the Grand Prix Cycliste Montreal, respectively, and Robert Gesink the Grand Prix Cycliste Québec in 2013. 
 

The team supported by Sports Director Michiel Elijzen comes with good form from the Tour of Alberta, and is completely acclimatised . Sep Vanmarcke won convincingly the third stage in Alberta, and will play an important role for Team Belkin in both races. Also, Steven Kruijswijk was in good form in Alberta. 


“All our riders came out well of the Tour of Alberta," said Sports Director Michiel Elijzen. "We have travelled a long way from Alberta to Quebec. But we still have a few days to rest. Sep (Vanmarcke) and Steven (Kruijswijk) are very important for us in these races. I expect that Nick van der Lijke and Jonathan Hivert also can play a role deep in the finals." 
 

Bauke Mollema starts his autumn campaign in the Grand Prix Cycliste Québec. Mollema’s last race was the Eneco Tour, and now joins the team that previously rode the Tour of Alberta. 


"Bauke Mollema is also going to play an important role for us on Friday and Sunday," continues Elijzen. "The races on Friday and Sunday are tricky and are WCH-worthy, and will be won by someone from a select group of favorites." 

TEAM Line-up:
Jonathan Hivert, Steven Kruijswijk, Tom Leezer, Bauke Mollema, David Tanner, Nick van der Lijke, Sep Vanmarcke and Dennis van Winden
