Goals: We’ve got a line-up that was built to put us ‘in the game’ on every stage of Burgos, be it sprints (stages 2 and 4) or hilly (stages 3 and 5).
Israeli sprinter Itamar Einhorn will get his first real opportunity to shine after an injury-riddled season. He proved that he is back after winning a race in Poland with the Israeli national team. “I am really ‘hungry’,” he said, confidently. “I will fight for a victory here.”
Krists Neilands is finally back and with Our Danish Champion Mads Würtz Schmidt , you can expect the team to play it aggressively.
