WorldTeam Strong Lotto Soudal sextet to Tour de Luxembourg

Lotto Soudal heads to its final stage race of the season.
Race 13 September 2021

The Tour de Luxembourg will be the final stage race of the season. In five stages, the riders will ride through the Grand Duchy, where sprinters, punchers and time trialists will all get the opportunity to go for the victory. For Caleb Ewan – recent stage winner at the Benelux Tour – it will be a final test towards the World Championships in Belgium. The fast Australian will be assisted by Frederik Frison, Kobe Goossens, Roger Kluge en Jasper De Buyst. Also Ewan’s compatriot Harry Sweeny will be racing in Luxembourg to prepare for the Worlds later this month. After a crash at the Tour of Denmark – in which he broke his collarbone – the 23-year-old rider now returns to competition at the five-day stage race.

“With Caleb Ewan part of the squad, we can have pretty high ambitions for the sprint. We’ve got a solid team as well for the other stage”, says Harry Sweeny. “Personally, I would like to get back to fitness after my injury. I’ve had four weeks on the bike now to try to get up to speed, which has been good. Obviously, the Worlds and also Paris-Roubaix are major goals for the end of the year. The Tour de Luxembourg will be a nice way to get back into racing and to test out my fitness. As my major goals lie after Luxembourg, it will be nice to help the team and do what I can where I can. It think it should be a good race and from what I’ve heard, it’s really beautiful over there so I am definitely looking forward to it.”
