Oliver Naesen : “It’s good to finish on the podium.”
“It’s always good to finish the season on the podium. I gave a lot in the pursuit and I was “burnt” by the finish. In the end, I felt that Niki Terpstra, even if he had to fight back after suffering punctures, was fresher than me, and I could not contest the sprint. I am satisfied with my season. I feel that I have made further progress. I would just like to win more races. One per year is not enough, although I know that many riders would like this level of success in such full seasons. My best memory is my second place in Milan-San Remo. Being on the podium of a race so “select” was a beautiful moment.”OLIVER NAESEN
