I am really excited to start the first classics in Belgium. It's every year the same feeling. Finally it can start. The smell of beer, cigars and fries from thousands supporters beside the road always makes the experience even more exciting :-)
I am happy that my winter went well and that the shape is there where I would like to have it at this time. I really enjoyed the win at Algarve, because it was such a long time ago. And especially because it was the third time in a row that I was in the breakaway in Algarve, but I never finished it off, until this year.
The Omloop this Saturday is one of my favorite races so I am really looking forward to be there on Saturday!
