Cylance Pro Cycling is back to the races this weekend from Northern California to Belgium. The women’s team will begin the UCI Women’s World Tour calendar on February 27th with the Spring Classic opener, Omloop Het Nieuwsblad. The men, and a fraction of the women’s team, will race the Chico Stage Race.
Omloop Het Nieuwsblad is a one day 122k race and includes many of the famed roads in Flanders Field, starting and finishing in Ghent. The roster includes the 2016 2nd overall UCI Women’s World Tour U23 rider, Sheyla Gutierrez (ESP) as well as sprinter extraordinaire, Kirsten Wild (NED) who has already secured three victories in Australia this year. Dani King (UK), Rossella Ratto (ITA), Jasinska Małgorzata (POL), and Joelle Numainville will be adding to the strength and firepower of the team.
After a successful beginning of the season in Australia, the women’s team is excited to build on this success into the Spring Classics. “The team had a quality training block after Australia, and we can’t wait to start racing again at the Spring Classics” says Director Sportif, Manel Lacambra. “As always, we will do our best, and through that, will find success.” The team will then continue to race in Belgium at Le Samyn Dames and Omloop van het Hageland.
