The 2017 edition of the Vuelta a Andalucia takes place from 15 February with a 155km hilly circuit to open the race. Stage 2 is considered the decisive stage of the race and will see a 6km summit finish to Peña del Aguila. Stage 3 is a day for the time trial specialists with a technical 11.9km course sure to create even more time gaps in the general classification. The final two stages feature hilly parcours, and will test the team’s strength in working together before a finish near Malaga.

Coach Aike Visbeek

Team Sunweb coach Aike Visbeek (NL) said: “For the riders lining up at Andalucia, this is their first race of the year and it will be a good reality check to see where their legs are going into the new season. We have had some good training camps and TT specific tests through the winter, which gives us confidence going into the race. In Spain we will have a team with quite some climbing skills and we will aim to get some good stage results. Our strategy will be an offensive one, with a special focus on the TT stage, where we will implement all we have learned over the recent months.”
