“We are still unbeaten in Hainan, it would be nice if we could extend that, but we know that’s going to be very difficult,” Sports Director Michiel Elijzen says

One year ago Belkin won all 9 stages and the overall with Moreno Hofland at the Tour of Hainan. This year the team is back, trying to keep its streak going in the Chinese race.

 

The Belkin Pro Cycling TEAM closes its 2014 season in China’s Tour of Hainan, where the green and black team won nine stages and the overall in 2013. Moreno Hofland took three of the stages and the overall and Theo Bos claimed the other six. 

“It's going to be very hard to do better than last year,” said Hofland. “I think we need to target the overall and try to win as many stages as possible.” 

The young Dutchman, after a season of ups and downs, remains eager and travels to the island ambitious for the nine-day race, October 20 to 28. 

“I won a stage in the Ruta del Sol and Paris-Nice, triumphed in the Volta Limburg Classic and finished second in Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne. But I also crashed in the Tour of California and was forced to abandon the Tour of Utah and the Vuelta a España due to sickness. Hopefully, I can end the year with a positive note.” 
 

“We are still unbeaten in Hainan, it would be nice if we could extend that, but we know that’s going to be very difficult,” Sports Director Michiel Elijzen said. 


“There will be a number of strong teams at the start this year. Regardless, we would like to bag some wins. The guys know that if they have the right legs, they can bring the season to a nice end in Hainan. 

“Moreno really benefited from his victories in Hainan in 2014. He gained a lot of confidence from that and carried it into this season. For Barry Markus and Nick van der Lijke it is a nice opportunity for them to try for their first professional victory.” 
 

TEAM line-up:

Jetse Bol, Graeme Brown, Moreno Hofland, Tom Leezer, Nick van der Lijke, Barry Markus and Dennis van Winden.
