Wout van Aert’s Miracle Day was, of course, the topic of conversation at Viv Le Vero. The guest praise of Karl Vannieuwkerke was great for the proud yellow jersey wearer. “I’m very silent about the performance,” said analyst Bart de Bucker.
Buurman singer Geert Verdickt couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw Van Aert win solo in Curry. “How does that person do it, isn’t it incredible?”
Analyst Bart de Backer is also in awe. “I was very silent about the performance. It started with Nathan van Hooidunk. When they started descent, they were fighting next to 3-4 teams to join first. rice field.”
“This was a very important corner. If I was in 30th place, I would have lost the first 30 seconds. I think Tiesj also drove the best minutes of the year.”
“That way, these guys can enjoy the luxury of being able to send out, but Wout still has to start 10 km. This year, Wout ran much faster than that climb. I do not think so.”
Wout won’t ride much faster than its climb this year.
“The best victory in Paris-Roubaix hasn’t come yet”
Jonas Vingegaard was unable to pick up a wagon at Cap Blanc-Nez with his teammate Van Aert. Primož Roglič was certainly not, the Slovenes climbed significantly far. Bad sign? “I think it was more positioned,” says Benji Naesen, one of the founders of the Lanterne Rouge Cycling Podcast.
“Logrich seems to be suitable for such a climb, but in Milan-San Remo, he also struggled with positioning at Cipressa and Poggio. As a result, he had something extra at Poggio so he could do something. I missed something. “
“Maybe it was here too, he had to make too much effort from a bad position to get forward, and he couldn’t do it anymore, or he made a tactical decision. . “
DeBacker subtly expresses this. “There’s not much room. Van Hooydonck was first, then Benoot grabbed the handle, then Van Aert, then Vingegaard. Then you already have four. The first five are from the team. You can’t pay with everyone. “
Mama Yvonne considered Van Aert’s victory at Curry to be the best of his career. According to Benji Naesen, the best hasn’t come yet. “He has already won many great victories. Ventoux, Champs-Elysées, now on this stage, but.
The most beautiful is Paris-Roubaix. “
“He did this in a team,” DeBacker adds. “It’s also part of the experience. He crossed the finish line solo, but very frankly, they almost ridiculed the whole Proton with the team. I think it feels good. . “
