Bretagne classic ouest-france

A team without a real leader

08/27/2019

With Jumbo - Visma, we will find one of the oldest teams on the Bretagne Classic - Ouest - France. Coming without a true leader, the dutch team should give their riders a free card. Presenting a very versatile collective, this team will try to compete with the favorites while dreaming of a first victory in Plouay.

With the Dutch formation Jumbo-Visma we enter the history of cycling. Active since 1984 under various names, she has already played 25 times the biggest cycling race in Brittany. It was in 1990, under the name of Buckler, that she arrived for the first time in Plouay. Since 1990, it has missed only four editions. His sporting record has three podiums: Markus Zberg 2nd in 1999, Juan Antonio Flecha 2nd in 2006 and Paul Martens 3rd in 2009. So far, the victory has always escaped the dutch team the most renowned.

Winning again will be a difficult challenge for the team to be led by Jan Boven (three participations, 46th in 1999). She will present a young team looking for first performances on a 250 km WorldTour classics with the support of two very experienced teammates.

With Amund Grondahl Jansen and Danny Van Poppel

Team Jumbo - Visma has presented its first rider list scheduled in Plouay under the direction of the sports director Jan Boven.
 
41. Pascal Eenkhoorn (Ned, 22). Issu form cyclo-cross, the young Dutchman will live his second Bretagne Classic. Like his teammates, he will approach the race with the desire to accompany the favorites as far as possible.

42. Jos Van Emden (Ned, 34). The powerful time trialiste will live his fifth participation in Plouay as a teammate to help his young teammates.

43. Amund Grondahl Jansen (Nor, 25). The Norwegian Champion, 21st of Milan-San Remo will be able to play his card on a race where he placed 12th in 2018. In a team without a real leader, he will be an outsider.

44. Thomas Leezer (Ned, 33). The Dutch teammate will have his fifth participation in Plouay to help his teammates.

45. Danny Van Poppel (Ned, 26). 14th in 2016, the Dutchman is in good form. 5th in Gent-Wevelgem during spring, he will be the sprinter of the team in case of group arrival for the victory.

46. ​​Floris De Tier (Bel, 27). Good rider in search of performances in the WorldTour, the Belgian should appreciate the course of the Bretagne Classic where he will be expected among the riders who can attack in the Montagnes Noires.

47. Antwan Tolhoek (Ned, 25). The Dutch climber, 35th last year, knows where he is coming from now. Like his teammate De Tier, he will have to attack from afar, taking advantage of the many hills of the course. We all remember that his father, Patrick, ranked 6th at Plouay in 1991!

The annonced substitutes are Mike Teunissen (Ned) and Maarten Wynants (Bel).
