Wilco Kelderman looks forward to Canadian races

Team LottoNL-Jumbo departs this week to Canada for the GP Quebec and GP Montreal, September 9 and 11. In both WorldTour races Wilco Kelderman is the leader.

"I feel good and can’t wait to race again in Canada. These are two beautiful races that suit me,” said Kelderman, who placed sixth in the GP Montreal last year.

Good result
"In Montreal, I hope to race for top 10 place again, but I would certainly go for the same result two days earlier in Quebec. Quebec has a short-style climb and Montreal is really a climbing course with the long climb in it. Given that, Montreal suits me better."

"With Wilco Kelderman, we take a rider who definitely is in shape to compete in the final,” said Sports Director Nico Verhoeven. “Last week, he showed himself with a second place in France.”

Leader
Verhoeven said the Canadian races are unique. In Quebec and Montreal, riders must climb a hill every lap.

 "The successive laps make it heavy and exhausting. We have different riders for the different race situations. If, as expected, it is a tough race, we will go with Wilco Kelderman for the win. If the race remains closed, Hofland and Van Asbroeck can go for the sprint.”

Line Up:
Wilco Kelderman
Tom Van Asbroeck
Twan Castelijns
Moreno Hofland
 Timo Roosen
Mike Teunissen
Alexey Vermeulen
Dennis van Winden
