Fabio Jakobsen is the top favorite for this race. The Dutch sprinter is the CT leader in the individual ranks.
Jakobsen will be guided by a young core like Ovsyannikov, Thijssen and Sureda.

Romain Vanderbiest is considered to be the leader of Crabbe. The Frenchman was fourth in the Nakhon Ratchasima Trophy.
Also Emils Liepins and Alexander Krieger has sprinted with success, so it will be a hard choice for manager Laurens147.

Matt Rowe should be the best sprinter for this British team.
Given the opposition it will be hard to deliver results, so my guess is that they will join the breakaways.

Davide Appollonio only has raced in C2's Faso and USA Pro Cycling Challenge this season.
In USA he was third in a bunch sprint, behind Matthews and Vingerling. Phil Bauhaus and Daniele Ratto are part of the leadout for Appollonio.

Sam Bennett finished second in a bunch sprint in the recent Olympia's Tour, so he should be able to continue his form. The man from Ireland also won a stage in Tachira.
Ricky Nelson is also capable of getting some results himself. Cameron Meyer will be the leadout for either of them.

For their best sprinter, Sandy Nur Hasan, is it the third C2 race after Frankfurt and Badaling.
It will be hard for him to get a result, as his supportin g cast is also below par.

With Granigan, Rathe, Rojus and Walscheid there should be enough help to contribute.

There are no real sprinters in the squad. This young core will focus on gaining as much experience as possible, probably through breakaways.

The help will come from Daniel Schorn and Martin Mahdar.

Thanks for preview. Important home race for Glanbia. Sponsors want a top 3. Should be possible but let's see if sending 2 sprinters was a stroke of genius or a stroke of madness!

Jakobsen must be clear favourite , for better or worse !

Awesome preview with the detail looking into every team! Thank you

Jakobsen is the main favourite but hopefully this doesn't prove to be detrimental to us. He has great support in Ovsya and our other young sprinters so hopefully we get a nice long train put together that leads Jakobsen to victory. Would very much like a GC win or podium here.

Good luck to all!

Probably a zero pointer here. I mostly picked this race because I wanted to use all 175 RDs. So it's mostly about xp for us.

I don't expect 76 SP Rajovic to get involved in sprints. A breakaway appearance would be nice.

Thanks for the preview Smile

When Boivin and Marin were together in a race things didn't go very well. When they were the lone sprinter of our team they came away with excellent results. Let's see if the trend continues and Marin can obtain something here. It's a tough competition for him, but I have faith in our rider.

Good luck to all and thank you very much for the awesome preview!

That wasn't supposed to happen! Grin And we got a breakaway also Pfft

I don't know what to say really. We're having such a great season based on my low expectations. Also who would've guessed our 1st sprint victory of the season would come from an unmaxed rider Pfft

Probably not gonna sprint in the next two stages, but I don't care Grin
