David Tanner will head IAM Cycling squad at the De Brabantse Pijl, looking to echo his 2015 functioning, with a improved result, when Aussie animated the 1.HC race with the winner Ben Hermans (BMC).
In 2015, Tanner ended in 30th place following the winning attack by Hermans He told that along with the Amstel Gold Race, La Flèche Brabançonne has been his most loved race ever since he became professional. The course just appeals to him.
He loves these short, stiff climbs for the puncheurs. As soon as they have to be climbing for more than 10 minutes, he is at a disadvantage.
Tanner began his season at Tour Down Under back in January before racing 3 Spanish stage races as well as Swiss 1 day Gran Premio Città di Lugano. With his retentions from previous year still saucy in the mind, the thirty-one year old is expecting that he could make improvements with a top result at the 205 kilometer race before Ardennes classics.
Tanner told that in the year 2015, the most recent time, he has raced there, he made just one mistake when he was out in a breakaway with Ben Hermans (BMC), who ended up being the solo champ. He was right there with him with less than 2 kms to go, and this is the story of his life. He has never been missing much to secure a prestigious victory. That is a trend he would like to change.
