Stan Dewulf « I gave it my all »
« The goal was to prepare the sprint for Damien (Touzé) and Clément (Venturini). We were in about 10th place when there was a right turn and I saw they weren’t there anymore. Then I tried to get the best possible position, but I had already taken a bit of wind to get to where I was. My sprint was not great, but I gave it my all and this 5th place is the most we could do today.»Stan
