Race Line Up For The Drenthe Series

The Bigla Pro Cycling Team returns to racing on Thursday 12 March for the Drenthe series of races in Holland. Sandwiched in the middle of the three separate races will be Boels Rental Ronde van Drenthe, which sees the opening of the UCI World Cup Series for 2015.

Annemiek van Vleuten will lead the team in Molecaten Drentse Acht van Westerveld after a fine performance in Strade Bianche last Saturday which saw her finish in the top ten. After the race she said, "I feel a lot more confident for the Drenthe races now after Strade Bianche. Maybe I underestimated my shape a bit so we will see how we go because as a team we are racing better every race and the atmosphere among the girls is just great."

For Boels Rental Ronde van Drenthe BPCT will have several cards to play as in form riders Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio and Shelley Olds will form part of the line up. Being the opening race of the World Cup, the race is sure to attract a stellar line up. The team will then remain the same for the following day's Novilon Eurocup where several riders who missed out on a result the previous day will look to make up for it here. All in all it will be a great few days of racing for fans.

The Drenthe races are spectacular! If you love cycling you need to be there at least once. The races are long, there’s famous Vamberg which is short but very steep, there’s crosswinds, cobbles/MTB sections, the crowd, the canals and the narrow roads are some of the things that make this race special and different. I believe a lot in our roster and they showed me in the last races that we can have our chances in the final of the race.
