Coach Kevin De Weert: “Yves and Victor have never let me down”

Only one thing had coach Kevin De Weert to grumble. That barely three seconds saved if he had been with Yves Lampaert a second pupil on the stage. Now ended Lampaert on spot 4, while Victor Campenaerts the highest ladder climbed. “It will be as the days progress still continue to gnaw at Yves.” But even that realization was the smile on his face. “Yves and Victor have never let me down.”

Climbing succeed us for no yards, sprinting is a knelberoep, but time trial difficult. “I give the guests a lot of freedom,” says De Weert. “Yves and Victor are allowed to have their own program and their own entourage of compiling, but you can see what they sure give back. Victor chose a lonely hoogtestage while Yves here performs at its innate class and on his Tour form. Only in Qatar scored Victor less 26th, ed) but then limited Yves with his seventh place the damage. Of course it would be gold and bronze have been even better, but we should not exaggerate.”

Campenaerts was the resigning champion. How harsh he that busy? “Not that he bloednerveus around them, but you noticed the past few days that he even more than before with the smallest details. A further measure, again to adjust, even with the mechanic present… And yes the difference is minimal, but that doesn’t count. From now on, there is a gold medal to his name. And that will remain there. This is already a boost for our wegploeg, that Sunday work should be.”
