How to make a statement 101. Wout van Aert (Jumbo-Visma) taught the class on Saturday and all others were seen taking notes. Launching at about 13KM using the Bosberg as his ambush point. No one could follow.
Nail biter! What a race. Great to see Fabio Jakobsen (QuickStep) doing so well after it wasn’t clear if he would ride again just 1 year and a half ago. But it is what he said after the race showed great perspective, “My mind and my prayers are with the people in Ukraine and the east of Europe. Let’s hope it doesn’t escalate any further and we get peace over there because for us it’s nice to be here and enjoy bike racing again. Here, it’s 25-year-old guys fighting on a bike for a win and there, it’s the 25-year-old guys like me fighting for freedom and their life. It’s not a nice time over there and here we enjoy this, but my mind is over there and that puts things in perspective.”
