Mountain King Kobe Goossens: “One of the Most Epic Days on the Bike” | Tour de Romandi

On Saturday, Kobe Goossens attacked Tour de Romandi for the second consecutive stage. This was a reason, because the Belgian had set his sights on the mountain shirt. “There was a clear plan to join the breakout.”

“I definitely didn’t receive a mountain shirt as a gift en route, I had to fight for every point. Matthew Holmes as an extra fellow Breakaway was of course an added advantage as well,” says Goossens.

The 25-year-old Goossens is proud of his achievement. “This mountain shirt is my first female captain’s shirt in a professional race, then immediately a WorldTour one, which makes him so special.”

Like his colleagues, the Goossens suffered rainy weather in Switzerland. “The weather conditions and the long climb made a very difficult stage. It must be one of the most epic days on the bike I have completed in my career.”

“I wasn’t satisfied all day and at the foot of the recent climb, I immediately picked my own pace. Bobijntje was a bit over and I had little illusions about a potential stage win.”

“With the weather conditions and the course of the past days, nobody is really new anymore. Sunday there is another experience, where I just have to finish to secure the mountain shirt. Depending on the feeling, I will or I will not do the last time. After that, the focus will be entirely on Giro “.
