Cycling. Road – Belgium – Tim Wellens, his first title: “I had the ambition to win”

If the coronation of Lotte Kopecky (Team SD Worx-Protime) in the women’s time trial of Belgian Championships was more than expected, that of Tim Wellens on the men’s time trial was much less so! In the absence of Remco Evenepoel, Yves Lampaert (Soudal Quick-Step), Victor Campenaerts (Lotto Dstny) or encore Wout van Aert (Team Visma | Lease a Bike), Alec Segaert and Rune Herregodts were the favorites of the day, but the rider of the Lotto Dstny and that ofIntermarché-Wanty came across a large Tim Wellenswho didn’t need to be asked to win the first Belgian champion jersey of his career.

“On the Tour of Poland and the Renewi Tour I will definitely try to justify my title”

“JI am of course very happy. I was motivated for this race, I had the ambition to win and I trained quite a bit on the time trial bike. I felt good, my legs were good and I rode even better than I had planned. I may have stagnated a bit in the second part, but I think that was the case for everyone.”explains, in comments reported by The newspapaerthe one who was still at Isola 2000 24 hours ago with his teammates from Tour de France. On this one, Tim Wellens will have the opportunity to show off his beautiful black-yellow-red jersey twice, “even if the times will not be a priority for me”he said. “More on the Tour of Poland and the Renewi Tour, I will certainly try to justify my title”concludes the 33-year-old Fleming.
