Team TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank is ready to kick off its European season in Strade Bianche. After a successful start of the season in Australia, the team is ready to tackle the first World Tour race of the year.

The team has achieved three top-ten positions in the Australian season: Alison Jackson finished in the fifth overall position of the Santos Women's Tour Down Under and Brodie Chapman was sixth at the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race and third in the GC at the Women's Herald Sun Tour.

The American team is now ready to face the 136-kilometre course of Strade Bianche, that includes more than 30 kilometres of gravel roads. "This will be my 4th Strade Bianche; it's a very special race to me and suits me well," said Rozanne Slik.

"I am very much looking forward to race the gravel sections. They bring a lot of suffering, but it's fun to race them as fast as we can. I can't wait to finally start the season with the team!"

This will be the first race for Ruud Verhagen as sports director of the team. "I'm very excited to do my first race for the team this weekend," he commented. "The team had a great start in Australia and a good camp, so I'm really looking forward to getting the World Tour season underway."
