Team Giant-Alpecin heads to the United Kingdom this week to compete in the Tour de Yorkshire. The second edition of the three-day race will be held on hilly roads with the first two stages expected to end in a reduced bunch sprint. Stage three is where the race will be decided with six ascents and a final climb less than 10km from the finish.

 

Coach Luke Roberts said: "The Tour de Yorkshire was a very successful and well-receivedevent last year, boasting huge crowds similar to those seen at the Tour de France depart in Yorkshire. We are very much looking forward to competing in the race. The course can be quite brutal, with small roads and some very steep climbs throughout the stages.

 

"We are heading there with Warren Barguil, who is showing some good form at the moment after his 6th place at Liège-Bastogne-Liège and will be looking to test his legs on the harder stages. Also, Nikias Arndt is in his final preparation phase leading up to the Giro and will be a real contender for a stage win in the sprints. The general classification is not a specific focus for us in Yorkshire."
