This week, 29 riders of the team will participate in the races for the national titles and this in eleven different countries. The time trial events are held from Tuesday to Friday, with the road races taking place from Friday to Sunday.
This Wednesday, Jan Bakelants and Aimé De Gendt will participate in the time trial in Gavere, where they’ll have to accomplish 34.8 kilometer divided in three laps. Three days later, the World Team will be represented by eleven Belgian riders for the road race in Middelkerke. A bunch sprint is the expected scenario at the end of the six local laps of 13 kilometer at sea level, even though the riders first have to cross the open fields in the Moeren twice.
