Eighth in Strade Bianche, third in the Gran Trittico Lombardo and today a new eighth in Milan-San Remo. “I can build on this,” says Greg Van Avermaet. “But today the two strongest are on the podium.”

Immediately after his arrival on the Via Roma, Van Avermaet spoke of a good feeling. “I felt fine all day long. The legs were fine and the team mates kept me well positioned in the front all day. And I could follow the best on the climbs. Until Alaphilippe and Van Aert attacked. I then had to brake to avoid crashing and then you know they are gone. ”

“In the last kilometers we did everything we could to get them back, but we didn’t get any closer. Then you know that the two best of the race are sprinting for victory and they deserve to be on the podium. I sprinted to eighth place and in Milan-San Remo that is not a bad result, I think. With three top 10 places in a week, you won’t hear me complain. I can build on this. ”
