Biehler Pro Cycling is ready to face its second race of the season: La Samyn des Dames. Henrietta Colborne is also prepared to tackle her second race with the team.

The Dutch team will start in the Belgian race with a similar roster to the one of the Omloop Het Hageland, a race in which it got a top-ten position with Natalie van Gogh. The riders will face a 101.1-kilometre race that includes three local laps, and each of those features four cobblestone sections.

"The first race was hectic, Hageland always is, being the first race of the season for so many riders," said Colborne. "In Le Samyn des Dames I think the team can show their strength and ride strong when we are at the right place at the decisive moments.

"Personally, I would like to be active during the race and be part of the front group. But we will have to see how the race develops."

Despite this being her first year with the team, the only British rider of the squad is not unfamiliar with the formation. "I was already part of SwaboLadies two years ago and I really liked the way they approached races and how they helped riders develop," Colborne explained.

"After one year of racing with Bizkaia Durango, I was asked to join SWABO’s first-ever UCI team. I really enjoy being part of the team again and I’m confident we will have many successes along the way."
