De Brabantse Pijl : "a new race in the history of the team"

The Brabantse Pijl marks the return to racing of the puncheurs-climbers of the Arkéa Pro Cycling Team, on a terrain at their convenience.

“I have already participated in the Brabantse Pijl, it is a very hilly race. It’s a very hilly race, with a series of very punchy bumps in the final stretch. The Brabantse Pijl is a reference race for the ‘Doyenne’ and I’ll be happy to help Clara and Megan who are very comfortable on this terrain. To do well in the standings, we’ll have to race as a block.”

Franck Renimel, sports director

“The Brabantse Pijl will be a discovery for the Arkéa Pro Cycling Team. On this type of course, we have riders like Megan or Clara who can show themselves at ease on the succession of bumps. Placement will be important, especially since the level will be high, worthy of a UCI World Tour race.”
