Van Avermaet shoot directly touch in Valencia

CheraBijna everything is new around Greg Van Avermaet. Team (CCC), sweater, team mates, cycling… But one thing has clearly not changed. If there has to be won, Van Avermaet at home. Stage 3 in Valencia and the first win of 2019 is already inside.

It may ‘only’ the Tour of Valencia, rarely do we have Of the Team as often as the word ‘very happy’ to hear to use as the Friday after the finish line in Chera, a village about 60 kilometres outside of Valencia. The victory was also one for which the predicate ‘with verve’ is invented. A tricky ride, just under 200 kilometers long, constantly up and down, with a very tough arrival – more than three hundred meters in height in the last five kilometres. Van Avermaet troefde in the sprint Matteo Trentin, Luis Leon Sanchez and Alejandro Valverde. The Norwegian Boasson Hagen (Dimension Data) remained the leader.

Faint decoction

Pessimists see in this CCC is little more than a faint decoction of the topteam that BMC was. A ‘smaller’ team, in all senses of the word: less riders, less quality. Would that team Of the Team enough support? Gain in this stage is not enough to have all those doubts permanently to take away – there are larger games need. But what CCC showed, may be the best prospects. First, the rider is perfectly placed at the foot of the last climb, and then Van Avermaet in the final with Wisniowski, Antunes and De Marchi is also very good, surrounded proved. “I have never doubted,” says Van Avermaet. ‘Everyone in us is justified. Then I know that our team just stands there.’

That it’s ‘only’ the Tour of Valencia, Van Avermaet even no argument. “Look at that field. Look at the names in the top ten. Valverde is fourth – on an arrival that is also him. Not only does it do a lot of virtue to your name at the top to see, that also says something about the level.’ (wvo)
