And whether he was happy about it. “It was nice to finally agree on a tough track is a good feeling to have because that was me this season haven’t often happen,” said the European champion. “I was really excited about it. I chose to make my own pace because you the risk of walking over your limit. The beveled side? Who was there this year, not so spectacular. But I have me amused. Technically it was good, then follow the rest also.”

Or is he more the opposition had expected? Van der Poel: “I saw in the start a person out of a pedal shoot but did not know that the Wout was. Then you know that you’re a long time is not a free job, and I think that Wout all in all, still a strong rate driven. And if you’re sick, as Aerts apparently this week, then you get on this track rather quickly to the bill. That I experienced last year.”

Pins stuck in the pedal

Van Aert was afterwards well satisfied. “The pins under my shoes were stuck in my pedal and when the loswrikken, I moved from my pedal. Well, then we turn if 20th the first corner, and you know that there is a long chase, wait. (Grin) Fortunately, this is a difficult trail you start to miss it.”

The world champion took peace with his second place. “Because it was my goal to get points to take back on the Show (Aerts, red) in the wereldbekerstand. I’m so successful.”

Sick Aerts

Toon Aerts was able to own to limit the damage. “I was the past week, what ziekjes but tried it for the outside world and myself hidden to keep”, was the rider of Telenet-Fidea. “Mentally it was a difficult week, so close to one of my favorite games. Luckily, I was good and I rode well technically a decent price on one large scrubber. I want that illness can be put into perspective. I drove so far a wonderful season and was here to my campaign does not save. From now on it can only but improve.”
