Sports Manager Jolien D’hoore commented, “This year’s Giro d’Italia Women offers a challenging course that will test the riders. With a mix of flat stages, tough climbs, and a time trial, it is an ideal opportunity for our team to showcase versatility. The last three mountain stages will be crucial for the general classification.”

She added, “It is a perfect introduction for Lore in her first WorldTour race, where she can measure herself against the top of women’s cycling. We will evaluate her progress day by day. Additionally, we have strong performers Julia Borgström, Maud Rijnbeek, Justine Ghekiere, Marthe Goossens, and Gaia Masetti, who were also present at last year’s Giro. We have a young team ready to fight and prove themselves.”
