Groenewegen has already tasted victory in the Saudi Tour and UAE Tour but had to settle for second place in Tirreno-Adriatico, and his best result in Milano-Torino was a 10th-place finish. However, he will have another opportunity to showcase his skills and strive for a win this Wednesday.
Dylan Groenewegen focuses on Milano-Torino as he skips Milano-Sanremo: "I'm not going to Milan-San Remo because I think it's very complicated for me"
Luke Durbridge, Luka Mezgec, Lukas Pöstlberger, Kelland O'Brien, Blake Quick, and Elmar Reinders will be there to support the sprinter during the race, which is a great chance for him to continue his momentum. Having come in second in the Italian race last year, he now has the opportunity to turn that result into a gold medal.
“I’m looking forward to going back to the Classic Brugge-De Panne, especially after my close second place last year. The route is a little more demanding than in 2022 and, as usual in Belgium, the weather and wind could affect the race. I’m coming from a good block of races concluding with Tirreno-Adriatico and Milano-Torino, and I feel I’m in good condition after a few days back home training,” he conveyed on his team’s website.
