The Belgian smiled at the statement in his performance recap: in nineteen days of racing this year, he has 14 places in the top three.
“The secret is to run as little as possible to have good statistics, laughed van Aert. They will drop at the end of the Dauphiné and on the Tour de France!“
“I am the type to want to seize opportunities, it is also for this reason that my team does not want to see me racing too often. When I start a race, I want to give myself one hundred percent“, recognized the winner of the day who particularly thanked Christopher Laportehis French teammate from Jumbo.
“It was the first time since leaving Dauphiné that I could count on him on the train, he explained. We worked together throughout the spring. Today he did an amazing job in the sprint. He knows how to make the right decisions and he is very strong“.
