Israel – Premier Tech is lining up with a strong team for Sunday’s opening Ardennes Classics, Amstel Gold Race, led by in-shape Dylan Teuns.

“We are confident we can fight for a good result in Amstel Gold Race this year”, sports director Sam Bewley explains. “The whole team has been performing at a high level this season and the guys we have here have all shown great shape lately. Given his recent top performances, naturally, Dylan Teuns is our leader but we have a deep team with multiple cards to play.”

Teuns will take on Amstel Gold Race after his impressive performances in the Spring Classics. First, he was just meters away from finishing second in Tour of Flanders, and earlier this week, the 32-year-old Belgian showed his strong legs once again, finishing on the podium in Brabantse Pijl. Now, he has got his eyes set on Sunday’s race.

“I feel really good at the moment and I’m happy to be back at the level I knew I had”, Teuns says. “I believe we have a strong team for Amstel Gold Race this year and it’s not just me who can make a result. Having multiple cards to play gives us more options in the race. Of course, I hope to be up there with the best, fighting for a top result. I’m ready for it.”
