Greg Van Avermaet: "A very positive result

"The result of the week is very positive. I had good feelings in the most difficult moments and I am on the podium of the general classification, it is a good result.
I had a puncture with a few kilometers to go today so it was a stressful moment but the team worked well to get me back to the front.
It was a difficult finish so I wanted to sprint and I got another top 5. Despite the puncture, I think we couldn't do better today. The final circuit was difficult but not enough to make any difference.
It's another great performance after my fifth place at the Tour of Wallonia and the top 10 at the Circuit Franco-Belge (9th).
I will now continue this big block of competitions in Germany with the Bemer Cyclassics (August 21) and the Deutschland Tour (August 24-28). It's a very important period before the two big objectives to come: the Grands Prix de Québec and Montreal (September 9&11)."[/su_quote]
