The 93rd edition of the Baloise Belgium Tour will take place from June 12 to 16. It’s a condensed version of the Belgian classics in a five-day stage race. The course is perfect for classic riders and punchers who will bring excitement to the race. The Decathlon AG2R la Mondiale team has bet on its classic riders to shine and achieve new successes in what has already been a successful season. They will rely on their leader and puncher Benoît Cosnefroy, who will be participating in the Belgian event for the first time.

Benoît Cosnefroy has already won seven times this season and has stood on the podium eight times. He is definitely one of the strongest riders on the Savoyard team since the beginning of the season. The Normand rider will aim to perform well this weekend, as this race is crucial before the Tour de France to fine-tune his form and continue his exceptional momentum.

To support him, the team will have Dries de Bondt, Sander de Pestel, Pierre Gautherat, Aurélien Paret-Peintre, and Valentin Retailleau. Damien Touzé, who will be racing on home turf for some stages, is also highly motivated to achieve a good result. “The Baloise Belgium Tour brings together all the Belgian classics in a stage race. These are circuits that suit me well, so it could work to my advantage. And since I live in Belgium, I will have supporters along the route, which is always nice,” he said.

The team is looking to continue their winning streak with Benoît Cosnefroy leading the charge. With his impressive track record this season, all eyes will be on him as he aims for an 8th victory in 2024. The competition will be fierce, but with the support of his teammates and his own determination, Cosnefroy is ready to take on the challenges of the Baloise Belgium Tour and showcase his skills on the Belgian roads. Fans can expect an exciting race filled with thrills and surprises as the Decathlon AG2R la Mondiale team vies for success in this prestigious event.
