Leading role for Manuele Boaro in Circuit the la Sarthe

The 63th edition of Circuit de la Sarthe offers fast, yet versatile, terrain during the five-stage race in northwestern France. Tinkoff-Saxo aligns a team led by Manuele Boaro and Michael Valgren in an effort to claim the overall win. 

Having shown strong shape, Boaro looks to make the difference contre-la-montre on the short, intensive 6.8km time trial.


“We expect that Manuele will deliver a strong performance at the time trial, which suits him well," says Nicki Sørensen. "He is a very capable rider on short, intensive time trials and I know that he looks forward to competing. He has done well so far in 2015, and I sense that he has added another level to his performance this year.”

Picking up the pace at País Vasco

Tinkoff-Saxo and the rest of the pack in Vuelta al País Vasco were thrown right into the mix with yesterday's undulating stage, typical for the terrain of the Basque Country. Four Tinkoff-Saxo riders, including Rafal Majka, crossed the finish line in Bilbao in the decimated main bunch, where Michael Matthews took first place in the sprint.


The Tinkoff-Saxo team takes on Scheldeprijs on Wednesday - 
the Flanders classic holds pride of place for sprinters. 

“It was nice to see Rafal where he should be. The favourites didn't go full gas on the final category two climb, but he came to the fore, which, at least for the moment, bodes well for the upcoming harder stages. Rafal was obviously feeling fairly well on the climb and he made sure that he didn’t lose any time, which was our main goal today.

Mørkøv and Trusov battle in Scheldeprijs

Time has come for the powerful men of cycling to take on the fast and historic Scheldeprijs, with 200km of racing in Northern Flanders around the diamond capital of Antwerp. Tinkoff-Saxo is at the start on Wednesday, led by Nikolay Trusov and Michael Mørkøv looking to secure a result in the final hectic sprint.


For the 103rd edition of Scheldeprijs, Tinkoff-Saxo lines up Nikolay Trusov, Michael Mørkøv, Peter Sagan, Christopher Juul-Jensen, Pavel Brutt, Maciej Bodnar and Matteo Tosatto.

Wishing all riders good luck and good legs in the days to come.
