Antwan Tolhoek looks back at a successful Vuelta a España. In 2017, the young Dutchman was partly responsible for the top ten classification of leader Steven Kruijswijk. Furthermore, he was part of an escape on several occasions.
In the Tour of Poland, Tolhoek participated in the battle for the king of the mountains jersey which eventually earned him a second place in this classification. His goal for 2018 is to assist the team leaders as well as possible in the big races. He also focuses on the Ardennes Classics and the Tour of Catalonia. “In addition, I want to see how far I can get in the mountain stages during the Giro to determine whether my performance has increased compared to last season’s. In the second part of the season my goal is to win a race. I have never won a race before, so if I manage to do so it means a huge step for me.”
