TBM comes to Brabantse Pijl with Sonny Colbrelli to defend his last season’s victory and offensive Enrico Gasparotto
After the “cobblestone classics, ”Ronde Van Vlaanderen and Paris-Roubaix, the Spring Classics go on with another big one.
“Bahrain Merida Pro Cycling Team will race again with highly motivated lineup and with Sonny Colbrelli as a leader for the final sprint and Enrico Gasparotto with a leader’s role for his offensive racing” says Rik Verbrugghe, TBM sports director.
We have Sonny Colbrelli back on this classic, and all the others will be very important for helping Sonny for his sprint and to try to defend his last year’s victory. Enrico Gasparotto who had a great result and a 2nd place two seasons ago at this race gives us right for the highest goals possible. Grega Bole had a top10 result two years ago and should feel comfortable and confident with the chosen lineup and experienced Borut Božič and Ramunas Navardauskas.
After Ronde Van Vlaanderen, Sonny didn’t attend the Paris-Roubaix, and now after a short refreshment, Sonny Colbrelli is hopefully ready for new campaigns such as Brabantse Pijl and Amstel Gold Race and make a step further. He is ready for big results, but all things have to mach and we believe in that.
It is a race with hard tempo and close to the end within the loops the peloton usually breaks into many parts. Such a scenario could be a good one for us.
