Stan Dewulf: "Happy with my condition
"The Tour of Wallonia was my comeback, I hadn't raced since June 20 at the Belgian Championships. I was able to do a training camp of more than three weeks in Livigno (Italy), and I didn't expect to be in this condition after such a training period. I finished this Tour of Wallonia 4'' from the victory, it's a little and a lot at the same time! Maybe I should have had a more difficult stage to try something but that's how it is. It's motivating for the rest of the season. I will participate in the Artic Race Of Norway (5-8 August) before the Vuelta a Espana (14/08-05/09). This will be my second participation in a three weeks event. I hope it will help me to be in good shape for the races at the end of the season, especially Paris-Roubaix."[/su_quote]
