Team LottoNL-Jumbo’s roster for the Tirreno-Adriatico includes three different options for success. The Dutch team will sprint with Moreno Hofland, attack the hills with Enrico Battaglin and compete in the general classification with Primoz Roglic.
 
“Tirreno-Adriatico is an important race for Moreno Hofland and Tom Van Asbroeck,” technical director Nico Verhoeven said about the Italian stage race. “There are three big chances of a bunch sprint and we want to play a role in them with our sprinters. Moreno is in good form. He came out of Qatar and Oman in good shape. He was quite unlucky in the classics opening weekend afterwards, but his form isn’t gone.”
 
Battaglin is suited to the other stages in between.

 

“I expect that he will compete with the best in a number of stages,” Verhoeven added. “The profile shows plenty of opportunities for that type of rider. Enrico was strong in the Ruta del Sol and trained well for two weeks afterwards. I’m curious to see how he goes in this race.”
 
Roglic will take care of the overall picture for Team LottoNL-Jumbo.

 

“We’re curious to see if he will be able to continue what he showed in the Volta ao Algarve,” Verhoeven continued.

 

Roglic is confident.

 

“I think that everything will be all right,” he said. “I’m not nervous, I know I’m good and want to show myself as much as possible. I will be able to aim for a good result in the general classification. The fifth stage will be the decisive one. The team time trial is a new thing for me, but I’m not worried. We will have enough time to train for it and to get used to each other.

 
“I don’t know much about Tirreno-Adriatico besides that it is a tough race. Everything is new for me this year, but that also works in my favour. I’m not afraid of anything.”
 
Line-up Team LottoNL-Jumbo:
Tom van Asbroeck, Tom Leezer, Mike Teunissen, Enrico Battaglin, Primoz Roglic, Maarten Tjallingii, Moreno Hofland and Timo Roosen.
