After the showcase in the morning, the Deceuninck-Quick-Step team has come to Roeselare for its traditional pre-race news conference.
The opportunity for Patrick Lefevere to talk about his team and a good start of the season: "11 gains less than the same as last year. What I also like is that the 11 winners are won by 6-7 different runners. If we do as well last year? The importance of me is the quality above the level. This team has been winning many races for years and is very strong. This is a special strength that is common."
Like every year, Deceuninck-Quick Step sees some of the best runners that are in a position; leaving, especially by leaving Niki Terpstra (TheEnergy). Even for the director, "It does not change much, even though it was a strong rush. I often ask the question, especially by & # 39; stop Johan Museeuw at that time and then Tom Boonen. And every time, I had ways to find someone else."
The last general manager spoke Philippe Gilberthe is a believerencouraged. When he has feet, there is no fear of attack. He has a way to win. Although there are many other reasons to come in."
This is Saturday, March 2 74th edition of the Het Nieuwsblad Circuit (World Tour), which launches a classical Belgian season. To continue the RTBF media.
