'Because Robert can't start, we miss our leader for a possible place on the podium'

In Canada, there are two World Tour races this weekend. In both races, the peloton has to ride sixteen local rounds on a hilly course. 

In Québec, the finish is uphill. The race has sixteen local laps of 12.6 kilometres. The last 3.5 kilometres are the hardest: technical and mostly uphill. In Montrèal, the finish is after a descent. This race also has sixteen local laps of 12.5 kilometres.

Sports Director Nico Verhoeven: "Because Robert can't start, we miss our leader for a possible place on the podium. We want to go for a good result. We’ve a few guys who should be able to do this. The team time trial win in the Tour of Britain motivates us."

Team: Enrico Battaglin, Daan Olivier, Timo Roosen, Amund Grondahl Jansen, Robert Wagner, Gijs Van Hoecke & Paul Martens
