¡Aúpa! GT Krush Tunap racing tough Gran Premio Ciudad de Eibar
It is no secret that Grant Thornton-Krush Bikes-Tunap Sports loves racing in the cycling crazy Basque country. That’s why we are very glad to be back racing over there. The Gran Premio Ciudad de Eibar promises to be a tough, yet epic day of racing.
Together, Marissa Baks, Inez Beijer and Daniek Hengeveld form the Dutch block of the team. The squad is completed by Swedish champion Nathalie Eklund, Melissa van Neck and Henrietta Colborne. We are very pleased to have Henrietta with us again for her first UCI race of the season!
“This will be a brutal but very beautiful race. Three climbs await us in the 117,2 km race, with a very challenging final climb just before reaching the finish line. It all starts with the Alto Udana, after which the Alto Iziar must be climbed. But the toughest part of the race is without any doubt the mythical climb towards Santuario de Arrate With 4,2 km at a 9,1% average gradient, this is a very spectacular and legendary climb in cycling. It for sure will be a sufferfest, but we will have fun racing here!”
The race will be broadcasted via the live stream underneath from 10.00 CET.
