Oliver Naesen : “A good day”
“The plans were to make the race very aggressive and be very active, which is what we did. I tried my luck near the end of the race, and those efforts certainly cost me in the finish when it came time to sprint. Overall, I am pretty satisfied with this third place. It has been a good day. The weather was really tough, and it took me over an hour to get warm. The team is in excellent shape, and we will try to put that to good use tomorrow at the Grand Prix d’Isbergues.”OLIVER NAESEN
