Paris-Roubaix (October 3)

Greg Van Avermaet : « Can’t wait to see Roubaix again»

«After a few difficult weeks, I was happy to regain some good sensations during the last stage of the Benelux Tour in Geraardsbergen (8th), racing on roads that I know by heart. My recent form was not good enough for me to be selected for the World Championships in Belgium. I have been part of the national team since 2007 and it was a bit difficult for me to miss this edition. Despite everything, I will be happy to see Roubaix again after 18 months of waiting. I would have preferred to race it in the spring, especially since my form was good which my third place at Ronde Van Vlaanderen proved, but that’s how it goes. Paris-Roubaix, even in October, remains a very important moment of the season and I really want to perform well through the end of the season and resume training for 2022 with high ambitions. »Greg
