Kevin Vauquelin: “I may have waited a little too long”

“It’s a nice 2nd place. I just waited a little too long to accelerate in the finale. I also messed up a bit with my gears, my fingers were a bit cold.

There were 4 or 5 of us breaking away on the climb at that time, we tried it, but...

Maxim Van Gils: “I got a little bit blocked”

“I wasn’t on a mission to save the team’s season. There is a bit of pressure, but that's normal when you're a professional cyclist and you play a leadership role. Last year, I finished the Tour and it made me stronger. Then I worked well this winter and I prepared well for this race.

Stephen Williams: “I’m lost for words, quite emotional really”

“There was a bit of a block on the road, everyone was kind of waiting, I just saw the 300 and I thought if I can get a jump here and put 5” or 10” on the group, you know, seeing the line in front of you, it would give me a good chance to hold on.

The wall of truth

The centre of the racing world moves. The journey is only a few dozen kilometres long, but every year, there's a genuine change of scenery between the countryside of the Flanders and the sequence of Ardennes Classics.
