Three Days of De Panne 3a


Marcel Kittel:
“Yesterday it was very close and missing out on the victory left me with a sorrow taste, so this morning I was very motivated to make up for it. I am very happy to reach my goal and get that stage for which I came here. My legs were good and strong, and the team worked really well. We were up there at the front, controlling the six-man breakaway with Iljo and Davide. But it wasn’t about only one rider today, the entire team was impressive and I must thank the guys for that.
I can be satisfied with what I have achieved so far since joining Etixx – Quick-Step. I got six victories, and what’s more important, we can all be happy for the way we work together. Now I’m looking with confidence towards my next objectives of the season, Scheldeprijs and the Giro d’Italia”.
