Team DSM is set to start its season at the Tour de la Provence, where it will use its new name for the first time.

The formation will kick off the 2021 season with the new name and colours at the French competition, where it will be looking for stage glory with several of its riders and the debuts for the team of Romain Combaud, Andreas Leknessud and Niklas Märkl.

"After a good team camp together at the start of the year, we're all excited to get our season underway at the Tour de la Provence this week," said Michiel Elijzen, Team DSM coach. "Over the four stages our goal is to go for day results with a nice mix of riders; with Romain, Andreas and Niklas making their debut for us. The parcours looks demanding but we should get some chances to go for a sprint on stages one and four, where we will work to set up Max for those fast finishes.
"Mark will have the chance to test his legs on the famous Mont Ventoux climb and see how he goes there. Overall, we have four opportunities to go for a solid stage result and with some good teamwork throughout the race, we hope to start the season in a nice way."

Team DSM's roster for the Tour de la Provence (February 11-14):

Romain Combaud
Mark Donovan
Max Kanter
Andreas Leknessund
Niklas Märkl
Nicholas Roche
Jasha Sütterlin
