Mauri Vansevenant: “Victory was certainly there”
Wednesday, September 30, 2020 at 4:58 PM
Mauri Vansevenant was part of the course in the Flèche Wallonne for a long time. Already in the first ten kilometers, the neo-pro jumped in the early flight, from which he was ultimately the only one left. In the end he lost his lead due to a fall four kilometers from the finish.
“Today I felt very good and I tried to get into the early break, because I knew the finish was not really for me. I also felt that things were going well in our group, we had a nice lead, so victory was certainly there ”, Vansevenant said after the race. “Unfortunately, fate has decided otherwise.”
The Deceuninck rider missed a corner at four kilometers from the finish. He was back on his bike very quickly, but he had lost his lead. “In the final you naturally try to take everything to the limit, because you know that it will come down to the seconds. I went too fast into that corner, couldn’t control my bike and flew out of the corner – straight into the thorn bushes. You can no longer make up for the time you lose and in the end I was short of that. ”
He went on to say that he dreamed of victory. “I think there was a great chance that I could bring it to a good end at the end. I don’t know how much the lead was then, but I think it was about thirty seconds. I hoped to get here at the foot of the Wall of Huy with a thirty-second lead. Normally that should be enough, but yes… ”
Initially, Vansevenant was in the breakaway with Aaron Van Poucke, Mathijs Paasschens and Marlon Gaillard, but he was the only one to remain at 25 kilometers from the finish. “We have always worked well together, the relationship was good. But in the end, if you feel the pack is moving too fast, you have to make a decision. In other words, you continue alone, or you will be caught up. I felt good, so I definitely had to try something in the final. ”
