After winning the E3 Prijs Harelbeke Greg Van Avermaet also won Gent-Wevelgem. Zdenek just missed the good breakaway and finished in the peloton on 53th place. But the shape is good. “Now I just have to maintain it for the coming weeks. Especially for the Ronde van Vlaanderen.”
“The race was really nervous with the small roads, the narrow roads and some wind. I think we did a really good race with the team. Ok, the last 20 kilometer we could have done better, but there is nothing we can do about that anymore.”
“I did try to get in a breakaway on the gravel roads, and it worked, but the group didn’t work well together, so we were caught back by the peloton. It was a good try. In the final my teammate Niki Terpstra got in front and he finished fourth.”
“Congratulations to Greg Van Avermaet. He is really impressive. Now we are looking forward to the Ronde van Vlaanderen of next Sunday, where I would like to show my good condition”, says our favorite.
