De Plus na overwinning BinckBank Tour | Team Jumbo-Visma
August 21, 2019
Yeah, this is our garden center. I have lived here all my life. It’s nice when the course passes by here. As if the circle was complete yesterday. Five weeks ago we passed by here in the Tour during the first stage. That was a unique experience. I think I will never see it happen again. So many people, so many supporters. It was really amazing when I passed through here in the peloton. Yesterday, we also rode along here in the last stage of the BinckBank Tour. I won the general classification before my own people in my own area. As if it had to be that way. Here’s my mother. My mother is also in the newspaper. – On the frontline. I had never ridden on cobblestones in a World Tour-peloton before. I didn’t know what to expect, yesterday on the Mur and on the Bosberg. I think it’s safe to say that it was my breakthrough. I believed in this victory, here in the BinckBank Tour. But of course I still had to do it. I had a strong competitor in Tim Wellens. I didn’t think I would win, but I sure hoped so. – What’s the next race that passes by here? Maybe we should also make sure the Tour of 2020 will pass by here. And then achieve such a nice result again.
