“A number of riders have been altitude training in Tenerife,” technical director Nico Verhoeven said in a statement. “The last race preparations are at three stage races: the Tour of Switzerland, Critérium du Dauphiné and the Ster ZLM Toer.”

“A few days before the national championships we [announce] the final nine.”

Absent from the selection was Steven Kruijswijk, who had a breakout ride at the Giro, wearing the Maglia Rosa and finishing fourth overall. Instead the 29-year-old is focusing on the Olympic road race.
