Of Aert for first big test in voorjaarskoers on the road: “I start without stress”

Wout van Aert is tomorrow for his first big test in a voorjaarskoers on the road. He drove today along with Stijn Devolder 60 miles on the trail. “We started in Mullem and reason to the Berendries. Then we are in the car dropped and the final explored from inside the car. It felt good to. I am ready for all, I start it without the pressure. I want this spring in the first place to gain experience and after Paris-Roubaix, the balance sheet format about the combination road-field. I start without stress. After the completion of my third world title in cyclo-cross there was a moment of decompression. I’m with Sarah to Malaga and my two slotveldritten in Lille and Hoogstraten were not great. But then the focus came back and I have to work towards this spring. On Mallorca, I have well trained and easy the switch can make it from field to road.”

No pressure but the entire cycling world is still curious what Van Aert already this spring can perform. “I understand that, I, too, am curious. The choices that I made this winter have made are good for naught. Everything seems to be in its fold to fall. Of course, it would be such a sad thing that that voorjaarskoersen disappointing. The team is also better equipped than last year. Sean De Bie won the etoile de Bessèges, he is tomorrow’s also one of the spearheads of the team. And Stijn Devolder is the ideal guide.”
