Team Flexpoint 2007 presented

13 riders, 4 new faces


Team Website

Team Flexpoint was officially presented in Landgraaf (Netherlands) on Wednesday 21st March. The team has 13 riders and 4 of them are new. The new riders are Mie Lacota (Den), LoŽs Markerink (Ned), Trine Schmidt (Den) and Iris Slappendel (Ned).

The goals for this international-oriented team are, as in previous years, the World Cup races and the Championships. Beyond these one-day races, the team hopes to do well again in stage races like the Tour de l'Aude, Giro d'Italia and the Holland Ladies Tour.

The name of the team has changed, but with the same familiar quality under supervision of former top sprinter Jean-Paul van Poppel. The team leaders are still Mirjam Melchers- van Poppel, twice World Champion Susanne Ljungskog and Amber Neben.
