Bahrain Victorious to Brabantse Pijl 

Jan Tratnik leads a strong lineup for Bahrain Victorious at the 62nd  edition of Brabanste Pijl. Starting in Leuven, the riders will race 205.1km taking on a total of 25 climbs before finishing in Overijse, making up a total of just over 2000 vertical metres. 

Tratnik has shown great form coming into the race after placing just outside the top ten at Flanders and Amstel and finishing 9th at Dwaars. Jan will have the support of Teuns, Arashiro, Maciejuk, Haig, Sanchez and  Taiwan National champion Feng who makes his season debut at the race.

Sports Director Roman Kreuziger shared his thoughts ahead of the race:

“As we saw on Sunday, the guys are in good shape even though we are changing the lineup a bit. We’ve got Feng, Arashiro and Sanchez coming from Basque and Taiwan.

We’ve got Filip, Arashiro and Feng, who will play their part at the beginning of the race. Then in the final, we’ve got Jack and Dylan in the circuit, which we will do three times, which is usually where the race will be decided, so we will need to stay focused there. We need to make sure we follow the groups, be up there, and give Jan the best possible chance in the final for the last lap.”
