Lotto Belisol: Preview Le Samyn
Wednesday March 5 there is Le Samyn, a race of 195,9 kilometers, will head from Quaregnon to Dour. After a straight 110km line there will be five laps in and nearby Dour.

The difficulty of the race is located in the first half of it, where the peloton has to cover five hills. In the local lap there are two more hills. The Côte de la Roquette and the Côte d’Audregnies have to ensure that only the strongest sprinters will battle for the win. The biggest contenders are the Frenchmen Adrien Petit and Nacer Bouhanni. Kenny Dehaes will be the sprinter for Lotto Belisol.

Jean-Pierre Heynderickx, sports director: “We bring a youthful selection to Le Samyn. We have also chosen to select Greg Henderson for the race. The goal for Greg is to take his place back in the peloton after the knee injury he suffered. The past few years Kenny Dehaes was always very close to the victory. But this year we will try to turn things around and win the race. A couple of fast riders should do the lead-out for Dehaes. Once again I am expecting strong teamwork from Cofidis. With Adrien Petit in their selection they have a big chance to win. Another one to watch is Nacer Bouhanni.”

Selection Le Samyn:
Vegard Breen, Sean De Bie, Kenny Dehaes, Greg Henderson, Boris Vallée, Tosh Van der Sande, Jonas Van Genechten and Dennis Vanendert.
Sports director: Jean-Pierre Heynderickx
