“I see riders like Joaquim Rodriguez and Dani Moreno as the favourites. I hope to save as much energy as possible until the final and on the Mur de Huy, I’ll give all I have," Mollema says

After yesterday's 7th place with Bauke Mollema at the Amstel Gold Race, Belkin continue their Ardennes campaign at the Fleche Wallonne. The team will have a three-pronged attack with Mollema who has finished in the top 10 in the last two editions of the race, Lars-Petter Nordhaug and Paul Martens.

 

The Belkin Pro Cycling TEAM will tackle La Flèche Wallonne on Wednesday with three leaders. Paul Martens, Bauke Mollema and Lars Petter Nordhaug will have a free role as in the Amstel Gold Race on Sunday. 

“Flèche Wallonne is the most predictable race of the three Ardennes classics. Until the Mur de Huy, it will be a controlled race,” said Sports Director Merijn Zeeman. 

“Just as in the Amstel Gold Race, we have a strong team, although we don’t have a true favourite. Paul, Bauke and Lars Petter should be able to handle the tough final. The team will try to keep them as fresh as possible until the Mur de Huy.” 

Though the race ending is predictable, Zeeman has warned his riders. He said,

 

“The wind can be a factor, but we are well prepared and know the crucial points of the course.” 

 

Bauke Mollema finished seventh in the 2012 Flèche Wallonne and ended ninth in last year’s edition. The Dutchman knows what awaits him.

 

“The climbs in the final will weaken the pack and on the Mur de Huy we’ll be sprinting for the win with a large group. The man with the best punch will win,” he said. 

“I see riders like Joaquim Rodriguez and Dani Moreno as the favourites. I hope to save as much energy as possible until the final and on the Mur de Huy, I’ll give all I have.” 
 

TEAM line-up:

Jack Bobridge, Stef Clement, Laurens ten Dam, Jonathan Hivert, Paul Martens, Bauke Mollema, Lars Petter Nordhaug and David Tanner.
