"The team will be focused for this race after some time off racing, and if we ride well as a team and make a good plan on supporting Simon and Lawson before the final we can go for a nice result."

Team Giant-Shimano is ready for the first big classic of the second falh of the season when they line up at the Clasica San Sebastian on Saturday. The team looks to Simon Geschke and Lawson Craddock who are both well-suited to the hilly course.

 

The first race for Team Giant-Shimano after the whirlwind that was the Tour de France is the one-day classic, Clasica Ciclista San Sebastian.


For most riders it will be a return to racing after a short break followed by a long block of training, with Lawson Craddock, Chad Haga, Reinardt Janse van Rensberg and Daan Olivier who come to the race from a high altitude training camp in France.

They are joined by Brian Bulgac, Thomas Damuseau, Simon Geschke and Tom Stamsnijder. 

This 219.2km race favours the puncheurs and in Geschke the team carries a rider well suited to this type of parcours. 

"San Sebatian is a tough race but we will concentrate our efforts around two guys here in Simon and Lawson," said Team Giant-Shimano coach Christian Guiberteau. 

"All the guys have been training well , with some guys coming here from altitude. We initially had Dries [Devenyns] focusing on this race too but unfortunately he will miss this due to his fall at the Tour.

"The team will be focused for this race after some time off racing, and if we ride well as a team and make a good plan on supporting Simon and Lawson before the final we can go for a nice result."
