The #YellowFluoOrange Team continues its nothern races, as it will participate to the Fleche Brabançonne (De Brabantse Pijl), a half-classic of 138 kms which anticipates of a few days the Ardennes Tryptic with Amstel Gold Race, Fleche Wallonne and Liege - Bastogne - Liege.
The Team Manager Fortunato Lacquaniti has selected for this one-day race the Italians Marta Bastianelli, Soraya Paladin and Anna Trevisi, the two Dutch Janneke Ensing and Karlijn Swinkels and the Spanish Ane Santesteban Gonzalez.
Very hilly route, with short climbs and cobbled sectors through the 138 km with start and finish in Gooik, a little town situated at west from the Belgian Capital Brussels. Fortunato Lacquaniti is very clear: “The route has many hidden tricks, we must stay focussed until the last meter. The team is very ready to continue our awesome season start, where we have taken already seven victories: six internationals and one of them in the Women’s World Tour.”
Chloe Hosking is going to take part in the Road Race with the Australian National Team at the Commonwealth Games Gold Coast 2018.
