This Saturday the 33rd edition of the Omloop van Borsele will be held. The Dutch race, ranked under UCI 1.1 category, as in previous editions will have a Women Junior stage race and an additional time trial race (19,9km) held on Friday. With only 100 days to Rio, it is a very valuable opportunity for some riders to prove their time trial skills as well as their current form, in order to persuade their national coaches in the final olympic selections.
