Kaden Groves
“I am really looking forward to racing in Estonia, I’m really glad we got the call up for this race, it is a really good opportunity for us and we have a good group of guys going. Guys that I have worked with in Oman and Turkey and we are all very motived to keep on growing as a group and get more comfortable and continue to win some races.
I think it will be a good race for us and I believe we can do a good overall result and with having the prologue on the first day, hopefully that can set us up well. Wte will then go into the sprint stages with the same goal to win there as well.”
Tristan Hoffman – Sport Director 
“We are going to the Tour of Estonia for stage wins with our sprinter Kaden Groves and looking for a high GC placing. The first step to having a good overall general classification in this four-day race, is by having a good ride in the prologue which is a short 3.7km. It is short and punchy so should suit a rider like Kaden.
Then for the first road stage there is the possibility of crosswinds, so we need to be in the front to give Kaden the opportunity to go for the stage win. The second stage is raced around 16 laps of a 10.3km circuit, 164.8km in total and it is also another good opportunity for Kaden, so we will go all in for him at this race.”
