It is time for our final appearance on Dutch soil this season. Liv Racing TeqFind will ride the Simac Ladies Tour from September 5 till 10.
The 25th edition of the Simac Ladies Tour covers 580,2 kilometres across six race days. The race will start with a prologue over 2,4 kilometres in Ede. On the second day the peloton heads to Gennep for its yearly stage there. The peloton heads to Belgium for a short individual time trial in Leuven. After a flat day in Flevoland, with possible echelons if the wind picks up, the peloton heads into the hills around Valkenburg where the fourth stage starts and finishes at Landal Kasteeldomein De Cauberg. The final stage is also the longest day with 150,5 kilometres. After the start in Arnhem seven laps around the Emmapiramide and the Posbank await for the riders, followed by five loops through Arnhem where the finish takes place on the Zijpendaalseweg.
Liv Racing TeqFind starts with Eva Buurman, Thalita de Jong, Valerie Demey, Marta Jaskulska, Jeanne Korevaar, Sabrina Stultiens and Quinty Ton. Korevaar has good memories of this race. She won the youth classification in 2018 and is looking forward to race on home soil again.
“After the Tour de France Femmes I took some time to recover. I picked up training again with some nice days in Limburg and the Ardennes. In Oetingen I and the team did a good race, so that was good for the confidence. Now I am really looking forward to the Simac Ladies Tour. It has a varied course and I always like to race in the Netherlands. I feel fit and want to race aggressively in order to get a nice result in one of the stages. We have a strong team and will look for opportunities to show ourselves. We have multiple cards to play in the stages”, Korevaar said.
