UAE Team Emirates are set to take on three category 1.1 races Belgium: the Dwars door het Hagelan (198 km, Friday, June 21), the Heylen Vastgoed Heistse Pijl (194 km, Saturday, June 22) and Elfstedenronde (195 km, Sunday, June 23).
Sports director Marco Marzano (Ita) will guide a five-man team over the weekend:
– Roberto Ferrari (Ita)
– Cristian Muñoz (Col)
– Jasper Philipsen (Bel)
– Rory Sutherland (Aus)
– Oliviero Troia (Ita)
All eyes will be on the local young talent, Jasper Philipsen: “I have never participated in these three races, but I know the roads well.
They are typical Belgian races, with hilly parcours and narrow, technical sections.
They will suit the fast finishers and also the riders who go well on this type of terrain.
I am really motivated, racing on the roads of Belgium is always special for me and I hope to be in the mix to fight for good results“.
