Yesterdays victory in “Het Nieuwsblad” made all the suffering on training this winter worth it. A perfect start of the season! The team, my condition, supporters and the Belgium weather was just like i hoped.  Foto/Copyright: Bart Hazen

I took my sorry ass up Patersberg without any help…. The race was all made by my teammates great racing in Kluisbergen and Knokteberg. In Patersberg we road away.

In the sprint with 4 I was clearly the strongest. I tried to jump at about 2km to go but in the end I had to trust my sprint….

 This was a team victory! Last year we were a small team. This year we made the race and took control. We put pressure on the bigger teams and stuck to our offensive tactic. That clearly puts RedSun up with the toppers.

Just enjoying the victory! After podium, antidoping control and some time with my teammates I was invited to a birthday party. One glass of champagne for everyone of my teammates…. 🙂
