Starting Monday September 19th Team Giant-Alpecin takes part in the seven-day Eneco Tour race. The 12th edition features a diverse course including two time trials, three flat stages, and two top finishes which will be important for the general classification.

The race kicks off with a 184.7km stage in Bolsward, with the first chance for the time-trialists on stage two. This is followed by two road stages on days three and four. Stage five will be a challenging team time trial of 20.9km in the city of Sittard. The penultimate stage will see the peloton take on a hilly course from Riemst to Lanaken before the riders tackle the final stage with 21 categorized climbs.

Coach Morten Bennekou (DEN) confirmed the objectives for the Eneco Tour, saying: "We have two main goals for this race; to go for a stage victory with John in the sprints, and to focus on the general classification with Tom. There's a strong field here again this season so we are expecting a challenging, but interesting race.

"In theory, stages one and four will be our best chances to focus on a fast finish with John,however we have to be vigilant for the crosswinds. John has been showing a really high level again after recovering from his injuries. Regarding the overall classification we believe Tom can target a top 10 finish, which will serve as a good preparation for the World Championships."
