CCC-Liv is set to start at the Ronde van Drenthe with a team that includes two riders that can make the difference in the tough course.

The second appointment of the UCI Women's WorldTour is about to start and the CCC-Liv expects to perform on home ground. The race will include several cobblestone sectors, three ascents to the VAMberg and the Dutch weather of wind and rain will have a big influence in the way it will develop.

"The Ronde van Drenthe is a long race with 165 kilometres and very tough with the many cobblestone sections, the VAMberg and the wind," said sports director Jeroen Blijlevens. "It is important to be alert all day because the race can explode at any time. I count on an endurance battle; only the strongest riders in the race will remain.

"Marianne Vos is in good shape, better so than last year when she performed well here. I also expect good things from Jeanne Korevaar. We have a strong team that has the potential to go far."

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

Marianne Vos
Evy Kuijpers
Valerie Demey
Marta Lach
Riejanne Markus
Jeanne Korevaar
