Most of the lineup, that competed on streets of Hamburg in World Tour race, will participate in Belgian one-day event, GP Stad Zottegem (1.1, August 21st).
This race is held on typical for Belgium course, so it features multiple steep “bergs” and some cobblestone sections. It’s hard to find any flat stretches, so it will be hard to predict if it comes down to a bunch finish or if a breakaway survives until the very end.
Jonas Koch will be one of the riders to beat, as he has proven in Hamburg that he is on form and copes well with such undulating terrain.
The other riders on the roster for this event are also capable of taking top spots at the line. Paweł Franczak and Marko Kump will be eager to showcase their sprint skills in case of a mass finish, while Kamil Gradek, Paweł Bernas, Michał Paluta and Łukasz Owsian will look for their opportunities in attacks and it shouldn’t be a surprise if they succeed.
