PLANTUR-PURA: “2022 IS ABOUT CONTINUOUS GROWTH”

UCI Women's Continental Team Plantur-Pura has launched their 2022 campaign with a ten-day training camp in Denia, Spain. With a handful of newcomers strengthening the team roster ahead of the 2022 road season, the Plantur-Pura management hopes to take the next steps in the development of the team and to achieve noteworthy results in the WorldTour events to which the team has been invited.

Part of the Plantur-Pura selection, a mixture of riders with an off-road specialization and full-time road cyclists, has just completed a ten-day training camp in Denia in preparation for the upcoming road season, according to the same principles and with the same logistical support as affiliate team Alpecin-Fenix. On February 27 the Plantur-Pura ladies will kick off their season at the Omloop van het Hageland, followed by several classic races and WorldTour events in March and April.

Philip Roodhooft, on behalf of the Plantur-Pura team management: “Since the start of the team, we have made annual progress. We hope to continue this steady growth in 2022. We are ambitious, but do not want to skip any steps. Being invited by organizers to several WorldTour races, including a few monuments, is a nice recognition of our growth. We’re very happy to be able to show the team’s colours at Ronde van Vlaanderen and Paris-Roubaix and hope to be there at Strade Bianche too. We will have a nice race schedule in the coming weeks. Next to that, it is our ambition to be at the start of a Grand Tour this year. It would be an absolute highlight of our season.”

“For this season, five specific road cyclists joined the team, which is part of our growth process. I am equally delighted that our partners continue to give their enthusiastic support to the team: Plantur, which belongs to the Dr. Wolff group (including also Alpecin), Pura, a sister company to Fenix, Deceuninck and Zwift – both of which can be found on the Alpecin-Fenix and Plantur-Pura kits this year – and clothing partner Vermarc. These partners believe in our men’s Pro Team, our development project and at the same time in our women's team Plantur-Pura.”
