Team Sunweb is already prepared to face the second appointment of the UCI Women's WorldTour, the Ronde van Drenthe. The team will have two cards to play for the final victory.

The Dutch race will be held on the 17th of March and will have a start in Zuidwolde and the finish in Hoogeveen after climbing three times the man-made VAMberg. Weather will be a determinant factor in the race and will allow different kinds of tactics for the final victory.

Sunweb will play with two cards in the Ronde van Drenthe. "This race is the Dutch classic of the Women's WorldTour," said coach Nicolas Marche. "The weather will play a big part and will be an important parameter.

"We'll go into the race in the same spirit as we did at Strade Bianche last weekend, looking to ride like a team, stay focused and try to be dominant. Floortje (Mackaij) was present at the opening classics in Belgium so of course, we count on her here. Susanne (Andersen) will also be a strong option if the race comes down to a bunch sprint.

Team Sunweb's line-up for the Ronde van Drenthe (17th of March):

Susanne Andersen
Lucinda Brand
Janneke Ensing
Pfeiffer Georgi
Floortje Mackaij
Julia Soek
