Known for his specialism as a climber and his huge endurance, Steven Kruiskwijk has shown is ability in recent Giro D’Italia’s and Veulta a Espana races with a very strong 9th place in the 2017 race.
This year however, despite also taking part in the Vuelta again, Stevens focus will switch to the Tour de France. Having not competed in the classic French stage race since 2015, this means he will need to change his approach and make sure he has peak conditioning come July.
“In consultation with the team, I decided to focus on the Tour this year. The last time I rode it was in 2015, so I still know my way around in that race. It’s good to try something else again. For this, some things in my program have to be rescheduled. I have to be at my best at the beginning of the summer now.”
The third week of the Tour is his main priority. “That’s when the going gets tough.”
