Would be interesting to see Mollema in a sprint on the Cauberg. I remember from TdF stage 6 last year that he made a pretty strong attack there in the finish albeit on weaker gradients but it seems he does have some punch. I think Cauberg will be too steep for Breschel.
It's a shame we're not seeing Kelderman here... Is he injured or do they think he's too young? Should be a race that suits him in the future, no?
