The Drapac-Cannondale Holistic Development team is embarking on its European racing block, with the team will be lining up for their first race at the UCI 1.1 Heylen Vastgoed Heistse Pijl this Saturday in Belgium followed by Halle Ingooigem next Wednesday.
This will be 19-year-old Jensen Plowright’s first time racing in Europe. “I’m really looking forward to the next few months with the team, said Plowright. “European racing is so prestigious and I’m excited about the incredible experiences that this trip will bring me”.
The team will then head to Holland to race in some local criteriums before returning to Belgium to compete at various pro kermesses. Drapac has had a lot of European wins in previous years and is looking to build on an already successful 2019.
After battling in 2018 with illness, team captain Theo Yates is looking to get back into the racing scene, saying “After a good Nationals and Sun Tour, last year was tough for me with getting sick. I’ve finally gotten on top of everything and am keen to get back out there and drop some hammers with the boys”.
Drapac Cannondale are based in Oudenaarde, Belgium for the next few weeks. Their final race in Europe will be the UCI 1.1 GP Cerami on the 25th of July.
