Lotto Belisol will start the Tour de Pologne with a dual focus. Maxime Monfort, Bart De Clercq and Sander Armee target the GC while Jonas Vangenechten, Kenny Dehaes and Boris Vallee will be the sprinters of the team.

 

Tomorrow the 71st Tour de Pologne starts in Gdansk, in the north of the country. After seven stages this WordTour race will come to an end in Kraków.

 

The first four days the stages are mainly flat. It's only on Thursday the hard work begins. During the fifth stage the Tour de Pologne goes to Slovakia. That day there are five climbs on the course. The first category climb in finish place Strbskie Pleso will be covered three times.

 

The penultimate stage consists of four laps with two climbs of first category, followed by a climb where no points can be earned for the KOM classification and where the finish line is drawn. An individual time trial of 25 kilometers closes the Tour de Pologne.

 

The overall winner of 2013, Pieter Weening, will start tomorrow just like Rafal Majka, winner of the mountain classification of the Tour. Fast guys are among others Theo Bos, Oscar Gatto and Tyler Farrar. Sports director Jean-Pierre Heynderickx gives a preview from the Lotto Belisol point of view.

 

"Definitely the first three stages are cut out for sprinters," he said. "Kenny Dehaes, Boris Vallée and Jonas Van Genechten are our fast guys. The form of the day will decide about who will be our man. The fourth stage can also end with a sprint, but it's more hilly. This stage is also perfect for a break with Pim ligthart for example.

 

"The fifth and sixth stage are hard and then it's up to the climbers. For Bart De Clercq we'll have to see how it goes after the injury he incurred in the Tour. Maxime Monfort is building up to the Vuelta. Armée, De Clercq and Monfort are our GC riders. The time trial on the last day is an advantage for Maxime."

 

Selection Lotto Belisol: Sander Armée, Vegard Breen, Bart De Clercq, Kenny Dehaes, Pim Ligthart, Maxime Monfort, Boris Vallée and Jonas Van Genechten.
