Coach Kevin De Weert predicts a difficult but beautiful BK with two favourites but suit outsiders

The circuit in Binche, announces itself not as easy. The aankomststrook on the Rue de La Pépinière is uphill with cobblestones and the riders will get in Binche, with 13 laps to handle, good for 223,6 km course. Question is, who on Sunday around 16h30 the successor of Oliver Naesen. The trail is already selective enough to make an honest and good sene of. That think also a coach, Kevin De Weert, Philippe Gilbert and Greg Van Avermaet tips as favourites for the gold.

“Just because Greg Van Avermaet and Philippe Gilbert to be addressed if the favorites can only but ensure that it is a difficult job for that duo. There start also men like Jasper Stuyven and Yves Lampaert. The latter has this year again a step forward for me. And in the last BK time trial vergaloppeerde he by in the first round to be hard to attract. Wout van Aert has a stage leader and was recently on the road to great achievement in the Elfstedenronde until he is in full final kasseizone genekt was due to a puncture”, says Kevin De Weert.

Lotto Soudal with a strong block to Binche down. “There, I think, than immediately to Tiesj Benoot. Who comes back from his mountain. That is now fixed the recipe to be good. Tiesj is no veelwinnaar but if he wins it is there at all such as in the Strade Bianche. Also Tim Wellens will be a toss want to do to the Belgian title. Which can, like no other, focusing on a contest. And Lotto Soudal has a strong set behind the hand,” continues Kevin De Weert

Wanty-Groupe Gobert, Sport-Flanders and WB-Aqua Protect-Veranclassic come with a pack of riders at the start. “And that is always an advantage. Xandro Meurisse is for me someone who would be able to stand. An explosive guy that the past few weeks, however, what is showed. The trail is already selective enough to make something beautiful out of it. By the way look at last year in Antwerp. Everyone predicted a boring BK with a bunch sprint. The contrary was proven. I expect in Binche is a difficult and beautiful title.”
