This week the Giant-Shimano riders will be spread all across Europe as they chase success at their respective national championships. The team is mainly pinning its hopes on Tom Dumoulin in the Dutch TT championships and Marcel Kittel and John Degenkolb in the German road race.

 

This week sees the European national championships kick off in earnest, and the first major action comes with the time trials.

 

Tom Dumoulin heads into the Dutch time trial after taking two second places in the individual efforts at the Tour de Suisse last week and he is in good form leading into this race.

"I am yet to see the course but I hear it is flat and quite fast," said Dumoulin when in Switzerland. "I have had good legs here in this race and am looking forward to the national time trial - I think that I stand a good chance."

Dumoulin is set to ride the course prior to the race to get himself properly prepared for the race. Also in action is Nikias Arndt in Germany, along with two Development Team riders, Jan Brockhoff and Max Schachmann.

Then in Sweden Tobias Ludvigsson will be racing against the clock and would normally stand a good chance here however his performance will depend on how well his body is still recovering from his crash at the Giro last month.

This weekend's national road race championships should prove an interesting battle with strong teams represented in both Germany and the Netherlands.


Team Giant-Shimano has seven riders in the German championships, including two riders from the Development team who will be racing alongside their WorldTour companions for the first time this season.

Marcel Kittel and John Degenkolb will be the obvious favourites for the team here if the race comes down to a sprint, but with Simon Geschke showing great attacking form of late the team has options for the race.

Over at the Dutch nationals, the team has ten representatives and will be looking for a strong result in the home championships. Ramon Sinkeldam and Tom Veelers are the team's sprint options while Tom Dumoulin comes to the race following a strong performance at the Tour de Suisse and could do something here.

Elsewhere in Europe, Team Giant-Shimano riders are racing in Austria with Georg Preidler, Belgium with Dries Devenyns, Denmark with Development rider Kristian Haugaard, France with three riders, Slovenia with Luka Mezgec and then also four riders in Sweden.
