Livestream the Healthy Ageing Tour!
CANYON//SRAM Racing will tomorrow start six stages over five days in the Healthy Ageing Tour. The team’s roster will be Alice Barnes, Tanja Erath, Rotem Gafinovitz, Ella Harris, Lisa Klein and Christa Riffel.
While the first stage starts on the German island of Borkum, the remaining stages will be in The Netherlands and all six stages will be broadcast live.
With five road stages and a short 14.4km individual time trial on the penultimate day, the tour is expected to be a much tighter battle than in 2018, where a team time trial heavily influenced the final general classification.
Both Barnes and Klein had podium performances in last year’s race and bring good form into the team’s second stage race of the season.
Barnes looking for a stage win
“Personally I’d love to win a stage this year. After being so close last year (Barnes finished second in a photo finish on stage two), I will bring what I have learnt from previous years to make this happen.”
“The wind is predicted to be stronger in the beginning of each stage, but as always the racing here will be aggressive and you cannot afford to lose concentration for a moment,” added Barnes.
Klein on fire after Ronde van Vlaanderen
“I’m feeling really good after a nice but hard race in Flanders! I’m looking forward to the tour starting tomorrow. In particular, I think the short time trial on Saturday can suit me well and I’d like to perform really well on that stage,” said Klein.
