“The finances have certainly played a role in this transition,” acknowledges our northern neighbour. “But what about me, also about the line has been drawn, is their interest in my experience to the team to improve. This is a team that the necessary steps want to make. I like the energy in the team to cross. When the team in certain matches well for the day, it pays that back. Everyone wants to move forward. That goal speaks to me.”
“The team is of a lower level than what I was used to. Direct-energy buildings is also an experienced team that in the past, also on a WorldTour level came out. I enter at the team management affairs, but I'm certainly open to their ideas”, he continued Terpstra.“You should also know what news dare”
The Dutchman had since 2011 active for Quick.Step. “After all the successes in 2018, I saw hardly any challenges with that team. This adventure gives me an incentive. You also need to know what news dare. I am now relieved and happy with this choice. I find it fun to try out in a very different environment to the season going.”
Terpstra posted at the team of Patrick Lefevere, his greatest successes. In 2014, he put Paris-Roubaix on his palmares, last year he won the Tour of Flanders and the E3 Harelbeke. In addition, he shot twice touch in Dwars door Vlaanderen (2012 and 2014) and he grabbed the overall victory in the Tour of Qatar (2014 and 2015), the Tour of Wallonia (2015) and the Eneco Tour (2016).
