“I’ve watched the race a number of times on television, though. The climbs on the local lap always assure that a small bunch sprints for victory. I’d like to hit back in that sprint after the Eneco Tour.”

Moreno Hofland will be extra motivated at the start of the Vattenfall Cyclassics in Hamburg, Germany, on Sunday, August 23. The rapid Dutchman of Team LottoNL-Jumbo hopes to bounce back in the German one-day race after disappointing results in the sprints at the Eneco Tour.
 
“I’m eager, for sure,” Hofland said. In the first stage of the Eneco Tour, the 23-year-old finished eighth, but was twice in a row outside the top ten after that.
 
"The first three days I missed some chances and that was too bad. It also eats at you, but in Limburg, I was strong and I was able to join best. Only two leaders and a small group that included Wilco [Kelderman] finished ahead of me. That's a good sign with Hamburg and Plouay coming up.”
 
Hofland hasn’t raced the Vattenfall Cyclassics before.

 

“I’ve watched the race a number of times on television, though. The climbs on the local lap always assure that a small bunch sprints for victory. I’d like to hit back in that sprint after the Eneco Tour.”
 
Jan Boven thinks the course around Hamburg suits Hofland.

 

“Moreno is a dangerous man for this race, but I have to say that our whole team is strong,” the Sports Director said.
 
“The run-up has changed and is new for everyone, but the local lap is how it’s always been. It is important for us to have a lot of men in the first group in the final kilometres and be attentive, but always keeping in mind that with Moreno with have a strong sprinter with us.”
 
Team line-up:
Jos van Emden, Rick Flens, Moreno Hofland, Tom Leezer, Nick van der Lijke, Paul Martens, Sep Vanmarcke and Robert Wagner.
