Giant-Alpecin have announced the line-up for Ster ZLM Toer.

 

The Ster ZLM Toer GP Jan van Heeswijk starts this Wednesday evening with a 6.8km prologue in the streets of Goes. The second stage is a flat one which will probably end in a bunch sprint. This will be followed by two hilly stages with the peloton riding in the region of Limburg and the Belgian Ardennes. On the final day, the sprinters have another opportunity in the stage to Boxtel.

Coach Mattias Reck said: "The first goal will be to target the sprints with Nikias. He is on good form at the moment and performed well at the Giro d’Italia and Rund um Köln, racing to third place last Sunday. Secondly, we have a couple of guys in our line-up suited for a short effort like the prologue on Wednesday. So we will be aiming for stage results at Ster ZLM.
 
“I expect differences to be small so the prologue and bonus seconds gained on the finish lines can be very important for the general classification. The unpredictable nature of the race makes it a great challenge with plenty of short but steep climbs and more than likely, crosswinds to deal with. Stages two and four will be most interesting because of the chance of bunch sprints and we will go for it with Nikias."
