"I'm very happy

"I had a hard time getting into the first group, but then I maneuvered well in the sprint to win, so I'm very happy. When you win with a good feeling it's great, you go all the way, but when you win with an average feeling like today, it's even nicer to have that finish."

Dries De Bondt

"I saw a lot of stars!"

"It hurt my legs and my head, but I saw a lot of stars! I'm a bit disappointed because I quickly felt that Jorgenson's attack in the final was the right one. I think I still had the legs at that moment to follow him, but I hesitated too much. I tried to react a few kilometers later, but unfortunately I soon felt that my legs were not up to it. I'm happy to be fifth and to have made an impact on the finish, because the group was strong and I did my best. Today's objective was a top 5 finish, and I achieved it.
