Stan Dewulf : «It’s a good sign»
«We worked well together, especially with Andrea Vendrame and Lilian Calmejane. I ended up with Simmons in the finale. He tried to attack me and then was caught back with 300 meters to go. But I was too close to the limit to pass him. He was simply going faster than me, but there are still regrets to have missed the victory by so little. I’m happy because my condition was not great the first two days. So this is a good sign. I spent three and a half weeks in Livigno (Italy) to prepare myself at altitude and now it is paying off. I hope to be able to achieve great results in the Tour de Wallonie as well as in the Arctic Race (August 5-8), and then in the Vuelta a Espana (August 14- September 5).»Stan
