And again it was Wout van Aert From the ground up in the picture. “I read everywhere that I count on 3. Just kidding, hey,” the Green Jacket laughed.
“It was another difficult flight and everyone was very comfortable, including us. It was necessary to have someone on board and that was fine.”
Van Aert waited on top of the last climb. “It was so steep that Jonas might be isolated out there, and then it’s been a long time with that descent to face everything. That way we were able to get around that and he was always supported.”
Did Van Aert think of winning himself? “Maybe I had my legs for it, but the plan was always to wait. It would be a shame to get past that climb and then if something happened…it was the right tactic.”
Tactic for the coming days? “It’s possible. But while I’ve been climbing today, it’s also good to help Jonas for as long as possible.”
also Nathan Van Hoydonk He was in the leading group of more than 25 riders. “A large group turned away and I didn’t see that Woot (Van Aert) was with me,” said the foreman.
“We had to have someone with us anyway. So the two of us were up front, but at Port de Lers they started driving like crazy.”
“At the summit, I set foot on the ground and waited for Jonas (Vinggaard). Woot did it in Mor de Beguer.”
“We’ve been creative with our guys. That’s fine. So one day we’re closer to the end.”
Tiesj Benoot He did his part in the peloton. “It was perfect with two men on the flight, because our captain in the final wouldn’t be alone,” replied Gentenar, who was battered.
“I was in the lead, but my back stumbled a bit and after Tadej Pojjar’s attacks I drove calmly to the end.”
“It was actually better than expected. My heart was more scared this morning than now. Usually the worst day after a fall is two days later, but it went well.”
